Jo Ramirez says Sergio Perez was just not good enough as a person.

Jul.10 (GMM)  Jo Ramirez, McLaren's former long-time team manager, has slammed fellow Mexican Sergio Perez.

McLaren ousted Perez, 24, after a single season at the end of last year in favour of Danish rookie Kevin Magnussen.

"As a driver Sergio was actually not bad (at McLaren)," Ramirez, a former advisor to Perez, told motorline.cc.  "I think he was also getting better.

"Sergio was just not good enough as a person.  He didn't really cooperate with the team, he was too cocky.  His attitude was very bad," he claimed.

"He was unpopular with the engineers, with everyone.  I often criticise him in the media, but I do not criticise him as a driver.  He's a good driver.

"It's such a shame," Ramirez continued.  "I was at the Jerez test this year and spent time with McLaren and Sauber, and no one was able to say something good about Sergio.

"They all say that he needs to change his attitude if he wants to stay in formula one."
