Sergio Pérez says the upcoming Brazilian Grand Prix will be 'very special' from his personal viewpoint, with the Mexican leaving Sauber at the end of the season. The 22-year-old, who is joining McLaren in 2013, has set his sights on overhauling Mercedes for fifth place in the Constructors' standings as a parting gift.
"The Brazilian Grand Prix will be the last race of a very long season that has seen a lot of ups and downs, and it will be a very special event for me as it is the last race I will drive for my team of Sauber before I leave," Pérez explained ahead of his second visit to the Autódromo José Carlos Pace.
"It is a great team and I want to thank everybody for everything they have done for me over the last two years. I am sure it will be very emotional for me in Interlagos. The best way to say thank you, of course, would be a great result and to beat the team in front of us. This is my target.
"The Interlagos circuit is very nice and it also has a great atmosphere with the fans. The support for Formula 1 is huge there. The Senna S corners are my favourite part. I believe and I hope our car should be good enough there for a strong top ten position."
To steal fifth place in the championship standings from Mercedes, Sauber has a 12 point gap to erase. This deficit is the equivalent of a fourth place finish.
