Is Perez a worthy candidate for a Mclaren seat in 2013?
Does Perez fits the Mclaren profile of a great future driver. Not to compare him to other drivers on the grid who are also kinda available to take up the Mclaren seat. In the experienced category, Kimi Raikkonen will be in the top of the list, but Mclaren also seem to have other candidates such as Perez, DiResta & Hulkenberg to choose from who have done well, with Perez being the best of the young brigade. But is he good enough "already" for a Mclaren seat, or does he need time like Ferrari keeps repeating, and get some more experience.
If Hamilton leaves, should Mclaren hire Perez for 2013??
Again, is it too early for Mclaren to hedge their bets on Sergio Perez, or should they choose from a list of proven drivers both on track & off track. It all comes down to character as well. The last time Mclaren hired a South American, it ended in tears. Not to forget the very hot-headed Alonso recently. Different continent, same heat hehehe.
Will Ferrari allow the Perez/Mclaren move, as he's under Young Driver Contract of some kind?
As soon as Lewis to Mercedes broke out, Sergio Perez was called for a meeting to Ferrari. Since Luca made it clear that Sergio needs more experience, it could mean that he was told bluntly that and Mclaren overtures is not going to happen. But his backer, Carlos Slim, seems to have his own way in most things (damn rich bugger) and doesn't look like will care a lot about hurting Ferrari management... so I think the move can be possible. Ferrari may get left red-faced if Mclaren buys out Perez's contract.
If Perez goes to Mclaren, the Popcorns will suffer some mighty shortage, especially if he consistently beats Ferrari on track for some good wins.
