Perez target much better 2012 season



Aug.10 – The Mexican F1 rookie Sergio Perez is sure he will be a much stronger in 2012 season following a solid entrance campaign with Sauber. Perez is constructive, but, that he will be talented to make on his first year in F1 to be much better in 2012, both on and off the track.

Asked about the prospects for next year. “I think a lot stronger,” he told Autosport

“Not only on the track, but off the track. When you come into Formula 1 you realise it’s a different world, and as a young driver I think it takes some time to adapt to this world. I think next year is going to be a lot more normal for me and a lot better season if F1, and this is my aim: to have a much better second season.”

Perez says, safe a agreement for 2012 season early has also helped him focus on his job.

“Of course, it always helps to know so early what you are doing next year. Normally as a driver, not that you worry but you want to find the best future for your career, and I think it was always a good idea to stay at Sauber. For me, it was of course a very clear decision. I think it has been an up-and-down season. The [Monaco] accident did not help. After Australia, in Malaysia and Shanghai I had some bad luck, but we’ve been always right there in the pace and this is very important. He said.

“Unfortunately my accident did not help at all because I lost some momentum, and to get back in the proper rhythm as a racing driver is not so easy after such a big impact in the head. Its getting better and I’m getting more comfortable in the car every time, and I’m sure that it was the right decision.”

Perez said about his Monaco GP accident, he suffered too, following which he was forced to miss two races, was a very hard moment to cope with.

“It was very difficult, it was not easy at all,” he said. “It was a big shame because it was a very big accident; I could have ended my career early. Fortunately that did not happen, nothing big, and I just missed two races – two important races where the team scored very good points, they were two circuits that suited our strategy mainly quite well. Unfortunately I lost some points there and some rhythm, but then I went back in the car in Valencia and it was all okay, I was in the rhythm straight away and it was all fine.”
