He could have expected more from Mclaren but they are an inconsistent team, brilliant one race, average for alot of the time rather like their lead driver. They have'nt won a constructors title since (i think) 1998 and have'nt won a drivers championship for 6 years and then only by the skin of their teeth. There is a problem somewhere that does'nt seem to get addressed, I don't believe it is entirely down to Whitmarsh however average he might be, there is a general malaise that needs to be rectified. Has Ron Dennis been asleep for a long period? makes you wonder!

Just keep that right hand (i assume having never driven and F1 car) pedal down son and you'll get there. You may be frustrated but at least you dont walk arond the paddock with a perpetual "sad face" on like Button. Paid squillions, supermodel girlfriend, only "works" for 3 hours every other sunday. Lifes a bitch man!!!

Can't blame Perez for pushing the boundaries in an effort to gain points from the" best " worst Mclaren . He is describing a full season of problems he never expected. The man deserves a pay rise .

Checo's comments about correlating data shows why there is a huge need for more on track testing. McLaren has been one of the teams against more circuit testing which now seems to be a case of cutting off your nose to spite your face! Definite leadership problems at this team.

If he try to drive fast and then he will crash on to back of other drivers' car because his foot on accelerator is faster than his mind.
The problem with Chico is he never confess his mistake and apology to other drivers who race he ruined.
He can not copy Vettel misbehavior. Vettel is WDC and Chico he is nothing but have Carlos Slim money bag.
Top drivers are nothing to do with Carlos Slim money so they don't give a damn about Carlos Slim money.
Chico needs to stand up and show up to be himself rather than relying on backing from Carlos Slim.
The situation is difference between he was in Sauber Team and now McLaren. In Sauber, he was favored by Team over Kobayashi on car. Chico car was rarely encounter with mechanical fault but Kobayashi's car was always problems with one or two mechanical problem but he try to bring back car home and score points.
In Mclaren, currently no sponsors from Chico side were yet to come to team. So he can not get favor from team and also it will be diff

Chico can drive fast one lap but his consistency for long run is questionable.
Current his style, I don't think he will be WDC one day regardless of how much his backer spent for him.
He must change his attitude and driving style if he wanted to be WDC one day.

Perez shouldn't be much frustated. At least he has had the best on Button in qualifying. And he is getting closer to him on race pace too. At least he has scored some points. If he would remain with Sauber probably he coudn't had score any point yet at this stage.
