Sergio Perez says that he full committed with Sauber, recently the speculation come-out the Perez possibly joins Ferrari to replace Felipe Massa.
The young Mexican finished second place behind the Fernando Alonso in Malaysian GP, still before his Sepang performance, Perez, a member of Ferrari’s driver academy, was thought to be in the running to replace Ferrari stalwart Felipe Massa alongside Alonso when the Brazilian’s contract runs out at the end of the season.
But between a bad start to the season for Felipe Massa, Perez’s second place finish in Malaysian GP has only served to fuel rumours that a switch could be imminent.
Concurrently McLaren Team Principal Martin Whitmarsh speculating live on Sky Sports F1 on Sunday evening that “there must be consideration” at Ferrari for making a move for the Mexican before the next round in China.
Asked if he had spoken to Ferrari chief Stefano Domenicali during the post-race celebrations in Parc ferme and on the podium, he replied: “No, no, I only congratulated him.
“As a team they did a great job, and for me, my full commitment is with my team, with Sauber.
“Obviously it’s only rumours, but no, I will stay with Sauber for the whole season.
“It’s only the second race and there’s still a long way to go, so we have to keep improving, especially as we’re a small team.”
Domenicali was asked about the increasingly strong speculation following the end of Sunday’s race by Sky Sports F1’s Ted Kravitz but insisted stories that a change was afoot were “just not true”.
Positively Ferrari has continued to stand by Massa and have vowed to help the 30-year-old work through the problems he has been having with the F2012.
