I don't believe that is the case at all, if you keep on colliding with other drivers regardless of which team you drive for they will complain. The pressure comes from having a crap car when you thought you were going to a top team with every hope of being really competitive. He will have to learn to live with it as it's unlikely to change anytime soon.

Hey, TableRock, and the other posters who denigrate and belittle Sergio Perez, read his racing CV and you will find that he has more merit to his previous F1 experience than the majority of the current drivers, including Jenson Button. I wonder if your bashing has deeper roots than mere driving abilities. He has been compared, not by me, but by real experts, to Gilles Villenueve and to Ayrton Senna. They were real racers, not like the lot of today's drivers who prefer not to risk losing points, as on the streets of Monaco.

Deacon: my opinion of him has little to do with how he drives. Aside from the Kimi move in Monaco, I really have no issue with how he drives. Although I think it is a far cry to compare him with Senna...My issue with him is how he handles himself with the media. And some of the unnecessary comments he has made. And to be honest I can't give you a great answer as to why he rubs me the wrong way, he just does.

@TableRock
same here. ever since he moved to Macca, i really don't get the attitude. I really liked him as driver when he was still with Sauber..but now. no. he keeps on blaming others on the mistakes that he does on track
