Pérez: Sauber can win races this season
6 January 2013 – Sergio Pérez believes Sauber will be able to challenge for race victories this season, with the Mexican expecting his former team's upward trend to continue. The 22-year-old, who has completed his move to McLaren after two promising years with the Hinwil-based outfit, picked up three podium finishes in 2012.
Although he is now part of a race-winning team, Pérez has not forgotten his Sauber roots and would be pleased to see the team achieve more in 2013.
"Sauber has done a lot for me," he added. "I would be happy for the team if it all goes well, more so than any other team – of course with the exception of McLaren!"
Pérez, who has replaced the Mercedes-bound Lewis Hamilton on a 'multi-year' deal, will share the McLaren garage with 2009 World Champion Jenson Button this year.
