Perez admits pressure higher at McLaren

Jumping from a middle-of-pack team to a top one has its challenges.
Thursday, March 7, 2013

March 7th (GMM).- Sergio Perez has felt the added pressure of stepping up the F1 grid for 2013. Formerly the surprise podium-getter in a Sauber, the 23-year-old has now been signed up by McLaren, to replace the ultra high-profile Lewis Hamilton.

"Of course the pressure is higher now," the Mexican is quoted by Speed Week, as he represented his new employer at the Geneva motor show.

"Anyone who can't handle pressure should not sign for McLaren," added Perez.

According to most pundits, Perez has had a mixed first winter with the famous British team, complaining about "extreme" tyre degradation and a difficulty adjusting to the new MP4-28.

"Of course I would have liked to collect more information before going to Australia," he admitted.

"Some days it was cold and really difficult to learn about the car," said Perez.

"But I don't know anyone in the pitlane who had carefree winter testing.

"So it's the same for everyone, not a disadvantage for us."

The young Mexican without a doubt has more eyes looking at his direction given the size of the shows he has to fill in for. Besides, jumping from the upward moving, but yet mid-size team of Sauber to McLaren is surely a challenge.

Expectations were different at Sauber with a podium finish seen as a big achivement, something Perez did three times. But, at the Woking based team, victories are a must, and since McLaren has gotten at least one every year since 1997 (excepting 2006) not bringing home a trophy would be considered a failure of some level.

So indeed, It would be a great opportunity for Perez to jump to stardom, but it still it would be a challenge to him to cope with the level of attention and expectation around him.
