POORLY PEREZ: He might be too unwell ro race in Sunday's 2012 Indian F1 GP.

 
GREATER NOIDA, India - Sauber's Mexican driver Sergio Perez cancelled his Thursday Indian F1 GP media commitments due to illness and there are doubts about whether he will be fit for Friday practice.

Sauber said Perez had a cold and a decision would be made on Friday with Mexican reserve Esteban Gutierrez, tipped to move up to a race seat with the team in 2012, available as a stand-in.

TEST AT ABU DHABI

Perez, 22, is to replace Mercedes-bound Lewis Hamilton at McLaren next season.

Gutierrez will take part in a young-driver test after next weekend's race in Abu Dhabi, only his fourth outing for Sauber since 2009.

Like Perez, Gutierrez is backed by Telefonos de Mexico (Telmex), the telecoms provider run by Carlos Slim Domit, whose father is the world's richest man.

The team has had four podiums through 2012 and chasing Mercedes for fifth place in the Constructors' championship.
