Pérez hopes McLaren has turned corner
2 May 2013 – Sergio Pérez is hopeful that McLaren will be in a much stronger position at the upcoming Spanish Grand Prix, with major upgrade packages being applied up and down the pit lane for the opening race of the European season.
With the team's MP4-28 failing to deliver its anticipated level of performance early in the campaign, Pérez and team-mate Jenson Button have struggled to make an impression on the front-runners, but the Mexican believes the situation is improving.
"After a tough start to the season, we are all united to get this team back where it belongs at the front," said Pérez. "Hopefully, we have turned the corner now."
Pérez went on to explain that despite the outfit's early car troubles, which have limited its points total to just 23, his transition from Sauber has been extremely smooth.
"It has been great getting to know the whole team – the experience has been all I thought it would be, and more," stated the 23-year-old, who sits 11th in the Drivers' standings. "Everyone has treated me so well and I feel like I have settled in great."
