F1: Perez says Force India equal to McLaren
Perez reckons the quality of staff at Siverstone-based Force India is a match for its Woking rival, despite a relative lack of infrastructure and resources.
"All of the engineers are top class – the same level as McLaren, and McLaren is rated as having probably the best engineers in the sport."
Perez thinks Force India's lack of resources can sometimes help the team by forcing it to focus on the basics of racing, rather than getting wrapped up in complex data and engineering.
"In a way, things are a lot more simple," Perez added. "They focus purely on performance and everyone is [always] trying to maximize everything."
in a way, i agree with Checo P. Mclaren along with Williams have always prided themselves as the pioneers of technological innovations in F1. but seeing Mclarens forrays into development 'Cul De Sac' for last couple of years chasing WT numbers and simulations and going nowhere reminds me of Williams BMW era from 00-04. they had the engine to challenge ferrari and macca then, but the chasis was a let down. i remember the walrus nose too, same with octopus exhaust of mclaren.
