Sergio Perez came under attack once again this season after the Mexican disrupted Nico Rosberg during the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday.
The Mexican, who came under fire from several other rivals this season including from teammate Jenson Button, has been criticised on numerous occasions for his aggressive driving style.
Besides bumping into his teammate twice this season, Perez also ruined Kimi Raikkonen’s Monaco GP after he clashed with the Lotus driver in the race. [Read: 'Stupid' Perez needs to be punched in the face, says Raikkonen]
In Japan, the 23-year-old made contact with Rosberg’s Mercedes which punctured the McLaren’s rear-left tyre forcing him to pit for a new set, consequently destroying his race.
"It's not good what he's doing, we know he has issues," Rosberg was quoted saying by Reuters. "If you move once to block you have to move out of the way, the rules are clear.
"It was very good he punctured his tyre and then it was just onward from there," he added.
Perez, who finished a lowly 15th in Suzuka while teammate Button secured two points in ninth, has had a deplorable campaign particularly in light of his strong season the previous year where he claimed three podiums in a Sauber.
With just 23 points against Button’s 60, Perez’s future is now looking shaky as McLaren is reportedly seeking to replace him for 2014.
