Button backs ‘quick learner’ Perez to replace Hamilton if he leaves McLaren
London: McLaren driver Jenson Button has backed Sauber’s Sergio Perez to successfully replace contract rebel Lewis Hamilton in the team if the Brit chooses to join Mercedes at the end of this season.
Button refuted suggestions by Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo that the young Mexican, who has been on the podium three times with Sauber in his second season, is not ready for a top drive.
“He’s a quick learner. A guy who can look after his tyres as well as he does is not stupid,” the Daily Mirror quoted Button, as saying.
“I don’t know what he is like at setting up a car but he can’t be bad if he is doing as well as he is,” he added.
