Perez: Maldonado could hurt someone

Sergio Perez has called on the FIA to sanction Pastor Maldonado after their British GP accident on Sunday.

Fighting for position at Silverstone on Sunday, Maldonado tried to dive up the inside of Perez's Sauber.

But instead of making the move stick, he pushed the Mexican driver wide and still crashed into him. Perez retired while Maldonado pitted for repairs.

Perez launched a scathing attack on Maldonado, who he believes is "dangerous" and "never learns."

"He doesn't respect other drivers," he told the BBC.

"I was already in front and he should have given space not to crash but he tried to push me all the way.

"I don't understand why he drives like that and I hope the stewards do something.

"It is not first time he has damaged my weekend.

"This guy will never learn if they don't do something.

"He could hurt someone."

Asked if there has been complaints, Perez said: "Everyone has complained about him.

"He is a driver with no respect at all, the way he is driving the stewards have to do something.

"He affects many other drivers. I am not the only one."
