Even suffering an illness all weekend at Monza, Sergio Perez
still managed a performance that prompted podium-interviewer Niki Lauda
to offer a rare dip of his famous cap. "I take my hat off, Sergio. You did an incredible job," legend Lauda, whose scalp is scarred from his fiery 1976 crash, said.
The Mexican's performance - his third podium of the season so far - instantly breathed new life into rumours he could swap his Sauber
for a Ferrari
Indeed, as he managed to overtake not only the endangered Felipe Massa
but also Ferrari's impressive Fernando Alonso
at Monza, surely he is now ready for the great Italian team.
"I don't know," the hesitant 22-year-old said on Sunday.
Perez's current boss Peter Sauber
was also giving nothing away when asked about the Ferrari rumours: "We'll see," he told broadcaster Sky.
Sauber chief executive Monisha Kaltenborn added: "We will in due course announce (the drivers) for the next season. I am still relaxed, as I was months ago."
Ferrari's Stefano Domenicali added: "At the moment we cannot give any information away regarding (Ferrari academy member) Sergio Perez.
"He drove a good race, no doubt." Perez told F1's official website two days earlier: "There will be a decision. And of course it is coming nearer and nearer." (GMM)
