Perez: I’m very lucky driver to be race with world champion Jenson Button



McLaren’s new youngster Sergio Perez says that, he is a lucky driver to be race with 2009 world champion Jenson Button, other than such a good guy. Also the Mexican admits that he learning so much from him in a short career.

In 2011 Sergio Perez has made his first appearance in Formula 1 with Sauber F1 team, replacing Nick Heidfeld. Last season he took three podium finishes and Lewis Hamilton made a decision that to depart from McLaren for Mercedes in 2013, and Perez was subsequently confirmed as Hamilton’s replacement.

“I’m very lucky driver to have a champion next to me as well as such a good guy,” he told espnf1.

“We are working so well together and I’ve been learning so much from him in my short [McLaren] career.”

“Definitely the pressure is there, the team expects a lot from me and I expect the same; I want to go out there and win the championship and fight everybody. I will work together with Jenson to learn a lot from him and I think we are doing very well.”

“The procedures are very different and the way the car works,” the Mexican added.

“It’s basically like learning how to set up a car with different tools. This is quite difficult because every team has different strategies on the steering wheel and not everyone speaks the same on the radio. That is something new for me but that is very good as well.”
