Perez reveals his replacement

2012-11-23 11:14

SLIP OF THE TONGUE: While speaking to Spanish-speaking reporters, Sergio Perez revealed who would replace him at Sauber.


SAO PAULO, Brazil - Sergio Perez named compatriot Esteban Gutierrez as his 2013 replacement at Sauber on Thursday (Nov 22 2012) despite no formal news from the Swiss Formula 1 team.

Sauber announced the arrival of Germany's Nico Hulkenberg from Force India but has kept quiet about who will be his team mate, saying only that confirmation would come within the season.


However Perez, who is joining McLaren, appeared to spill the beans in a conversation with Spanish-speaking reporters at the season-ending 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix. "The car will be strong because the rules don't change much, and the team has a good experienced driver in Nico and he will have a strong team mate in Esteban."

Asked for more details, he added: "We are waiting for the announcement."

Gutierrez's promotion from test and reserve driver - widely expected, given the team's Mexican sponsors - would mean the departure of Kamui Kobayashi, the only Japanese driver on the grid.

Perez is moving to McLaren as ra eplacement for 2008 champion Lewis Hamilton, who will race for Mercedes as the most high-profile signing for 2013.
