Perez impresses Ferrari in test

"This was a really special day for me," said the Mexican. Luca Baldisserri enthused: "Sergio impressed, despite this being his first time at the wheel of a Ferrari. He proved to be aggressive and quick right from the start." Ferrari's decision to snap up Perez to their academy has prompted speculation that he could be in the running to replace Felipe Massa beyond 2012.

Interesting, yet another driver linked with Ferrari. How long-term is that contract of yours Massa?
massa   Felipe Massa
I have a contract until the end of 2012 Fernando.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
About as long-term as the prospects of an X-Factor contestant then. Pity, only 25 more races for me to humiliate you. Good luck with the job hunting.
massa   Felipe Massa
I have a very special bond with Ferrari Fernando, one that I hope will see my contract extended.
Domenicali   Stefano Domenicali
We must appreciate this fragile but magical bond with our beloved Felipe. However, sometimes even the oldest son must leave the happiness of the nest to spread his wings.
massa   Felipe Massa
What if the oldest son doesn't want to leave?
Domenicali   Stefano Domenicali
The beauty of love is sometimes tinged with the sadness of parting, and we must always think of Ferrari, everything for Ferrari, our beautiful Ferrari family is before us all.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Ah shucks, this must be the most heart-rending separation since Timberlake and Spears broke up.
PSauber   Peter Sauber
I hope you had a fun day out, but remember you will be returning to your Sauber car in Singapore Sergio.
Perez   Sergio Perez Ferrari now. Ferrari good.
PSauber   Peter Sauber
It's ok Sergio, we have a shiny Ferrari engine and gearbox in your Sauber for you.
Perez   Sergio Perez
Ferrari Sauber good.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Good luck in Singapore Sergio, just watch out for that tricky entry to the chicane.
Perez   Sergio Perez
No, chicane? chicane bad.
PSauber   Peter Sauber
Please Michael, the doctors have removed the word chicane from Sergio's vocabulary to stop his flashbacks. We refer to that section of track as Turn 10.
Kobayashi   Kamui Kobayashi
Do not fear Perezsan, listen to our master. Follow my spirit in practice and I will guide you through this Turn 10, and dispel the dark ghosts who stalk you there.
Ambrosia   Jerome d'Ambrosio
I think I heard they were also thinking of getting Jenson for 2013 Fernando.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Christ Ambrosia, what did you bring that up for, don't get him started.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
Easy Fernando, you need to break this thoroughbred in gently, we could be prancing together in something racy and red very soon.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Give me strength, maybe we should keep poor little Massa.
