Pérez joins Ferrari Drivers Academy
October 8, 2010 1 Comment
The good news for Sergio Pérez just keep rolling in this week. After signing with the Sauber F1 team for 2011, Scuderia Ferrari has announced that the Mexican will join its FDA program.
The announcement adds the first current F1 driver to the program’s lineup, dropping in a step above rival Jules Bianchi, who Pérez raced against in GP2 this season. Pérez is not managed, at least not yet, by Nicolas Todt but by ex-Indycar driver Adrián Fernández.
The program continues to grown in depth, and the Ferrari engine deal with Sauber has surely helped facilitate a deal where Ferrari will closely monitor one of its 2011 rivals as part of its development program.
