Sergio Pérez Mendoza (born 26 January 1990), also known as "Checo" Pérez, is a Mexican racing driver currently racing for Sauber in the 2012 Formula One season. Pérez is the younger brother of former champion NASCAR Corona Series driver Antonio Pérez and is also a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy. He also took his first Formula One podium at the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix, a drive which won him plaudits and fuelled speculation of a move to Ferrari in the near future. However, Pérez later told reporters that he expected to stay with Sauber until at least the end of the 2012 season. Due to his young age and performance, he has been referred to as "The Mexican Wunderkind".

Perez will join McLaren for the 2013 season, replacing Lewis Hamilton and racing alongside Jenson Button.
