    Looks like Perez wants everybody to move out of the way when he is getting close. Sorry, the only good overtake he did in that place during the race was on Button. The rest was just stupid.

    Think Perez should go back to carts and give someone else a spot in F1

    I really don't like this kind of overtaking. It's completely unfair on the other driver. Either you get out of my way or I crash into you, that's the idea behind this style of driving. There is no way for the other driver to defend because if he does then this happens.

    I think maybe Perez would be better suited for NASCAR.

    Why are you all angry with Perez? That's absolutely okay for a public Race 07 server!

    Since Sunday's race, every time someone online make a silly move, and we all know it happens a lot with online racing, I think to myself it might be Perez driving.lol
    Perez as no business driving a F1, hopefully McLaren understands their mistake and choose a real talent to drive their car next to Jenson.

    Perez does need to calm it down. I do like seeing him going for it, but sometimes he is risking his car and others, McLaren need to tell him this. Maybe he will mature and calm it down, on the surface McLaren will back him, behind the door it could be different.

    I was surprised hearing of Perez joining Team McLaren and the jury is still out.

    completely agree with you.

    biggest problem in my opinion is that race control backs him up. Alonso had to cut the chicane to avoid him and had to give back the position on the track to Perez...

    The decision that Alonso had to give the position to Perez was a complete JOKE as that was the only thing that could prevent a collision. Kind of ironic that it was Perez himself to prove later on what would happen if the attacked driver didn't react like Alonso. One has to be incredibly stupid not to realize that the move was nothing but nonesense.
    Conclusion: Thumbs down for race control for supporting such manouvres and an even bigger thumbs down for Perez' stupid driving style and the biggest thumbs down for his inability to realize his mistake.

    You do realize that FIA do receive telemetry data from both cars and can there for go as far as calculate if both drivers could make the turn (like Perez vs Button managed) or if Alonso was really forced to exit the track...

    ‘... so at the end of the day you have to give some space. Kimi gave me no room at all and there was nothing I could do to avoid it. If someone could have avoided the accident then it was Kimi and not myself.’

    Really?...
    I like Perez...but this comment is asinine at best.
    Any driver...whether you are in a junior formula or not, knows that an attempt to pass has to take into consideration an outcome if it doesn't come off as planned.
    His attempt to pass as the cars were turning left into the chicane...from that far behind Kimi was never going to work. It was stupid and lost him points. He obviously did not have on the "thinking" cap for that move.

    We should have had a poll on this. "Should Perez be punched in the face?"
