Well as much as i do like Perez and as much i think he deserves being praised for his performances the past seasons and undoubtedly also for 2018,
i think that it all gets clear as day when you realize that you could expect that if Bottas doesn't deliver for 2018, Ocon will replace him at Mercedes AMG F1 Team in 2019,
and Perez most certainly will not. Ocon is pretty good, it must be said though, but i gotta say that, though Perez is a hothead too, i really think Ocon has a very dislikeable personality and stance. I feel like he should take some more responsibility and don't put blame elsewhere (not that he's like the next Massa or Palmer), as that would also greatly improve his craft and would make him grow as a driver and become much more of an opponent.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.
