Sauber team Principal Peter Sauber is confident that the youngster Perez has a good future in Formula 1. And he added that the Mexican had no contact with Ferrari.
“The feeling is fantastic, of course,” Sauber told Speed.com. “‘Checo’ (Perez) did an incredible race. I was so surprised after the tire change; he was in front with wet tires, with intermediate tires – well not in front, but he drove the fastest lap. And then also with slick tires. He’s young and I think he has a good future.
“Also, the car has to be good, otherwise you can’t do that. But I think we have to stay on the ground – that’s important.”
Asked to evaluate the Malaysian result with Kubica’s victory, Sauber said: “Don’t forget in Montreal we were very lucky with this crash between Kimi (Raikkonen) and (Lewis) Hamilton.”
“He has no contact with Ferrari. He is in this (Ferrari) academy, but it’s nothing special,” Sauber said.
“We needed the result, because behind all our competitors scored points, and it’s very important that we had the result. It was, ‘Be careful, we need the result.’ It’s nothing to do with Alonso in front.”
