Pérez heads into Saturday in confident mood
2 November 2012 – One man to watch out for on Saturday in Abu Dhabi could be McLaren-bound Sergio Pérez. The Sauber driver not only finished inside the top ten on Friday, but was able to tick off all the relevant boxes and complete his full scheduled workload for the day.
“It was a good day,” the Mexican reported after completing 36 laps in the evening. “We have completed our entire planned programme, so in that respect it was very positive. I am comfortable with the balance of the car and, therefore, I think my position in the second session is pretty much what we are capable of here. Q3 is possible.”
Since signing for McLaren ahead of 2013, Pérez is yet to score a point for Sauber. His last top ten finish was tenth – and a collection of a single point – in Singapore.
