Well if he wasn't on the way out before he will be now!

Although, past experience has told us that McLaren are more than happy to allow their drivers to bad mouth the team with absolutely no consequences...

Is it just me or is it no latin driver (presumably with a latin temperament) since Senna has gotten on at McLaren? You had Montoya leave midway through his second season, Alonso left after 1 and Perez looks to be following suit.

Looks like Perez is being used as a whipping boy.
His performance this year hasn't exactly been dazzling but then again, nor has Buttons. This suggests the car is not that good, so lets blame the junior driver.
The Magnusson deal is probably done and the comments were made after being told.
His wallet will probably keep him in F1. Force India perhaps?

Hardly suprising he's on the way out Button and Whitmarsh should follow also.
What race this year has McLaren figured in?
All those resources and budget and its being completely wasted on average drivers. At least Magnusson has some decent pace in him he can hardly do any worse than the current pilots can he

He's been his own worst enemy at times.

Far to aggressive in blocking and overtakes that were never on. Banging wheels. He's been quick at times but the stats aren't great vs Button.

I think McLaren were expecting a bit more, he was unlucky though that this years car was a dog.

He's an okay driver but thought Kobayashi was better and certainly much better/cleaner at overtakes.

Perez's strength was tyre management, problem is Button is one of the best at looking after his tyres so he didn't have that advantage.

The team leader is where the buck stops. A good team leader would never allow the type of situation Perez is describing to occure in the first place. Let's be honest, he's simply covering his tracks in case Whitmarsh has a change of heart, or for some reason Magnussen is not available.
I must say Whitmarch has never struck me as being a good team manager. He's certainly no Ron Dennis, that's for sure.

Perez is a bit unusual in that he's been slow and reckless this season, 2 adjectives that rarely go together in F1.

Fast and reckless - there's been a few of those.

Slow and safe - there's been a few of those

Slow and reckless - hmm that's rare.
