Sergio Pérez believes former Sauber team-mate Kamui Kobayashi has what it takes to make a Formula 1 return in the future. After being dropped by the Swiss-team at the end of the 2012 season, the Japanese driver was unable to find a seat elsewhere.
Sauber opted for an all-new driver line-up of Nico Hülkenberg and Esteban Gutiérrez following Pérez's departure to McLaren, but the Mexican is adamant that Kobayashi 'can do a very good job' for any team and hopes to see him back on the grid in 2014.
"He’s a great driver and a great guy and someone who can do a very good job for a team," 22-year-old Pérez explained to reporters during his first official day at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking.
"I feel a bit sorry for him but I’m sure he’ll be back next year because with his speed he should be able to find a good seat and hopefully we’ll have him back."
Kobayashi raised over six million pounds in a bid to secure a Formula 1 seat this season, with fans given the opportunity to donate via his official website. He has vowed to use the funds to boost his chances of making a comeback in 2014.
