Comment of the day

Mantresx picked up on an interesting claim form Ferrari yesterday’s round-up:

From the Ferrari article:

“By the time he had signed for McLaren, Mexico?s Sergio Perez had already left the Academy.”

I don?t believe that, at the time it was never mentioned he had “left” the Academy before signing and actually I remember Baldisserri saying that he was too aggressive, blah blah blah, so he must’ve been involved one way or another at the time.
