Leave me alone I'm on Smoko
Perez does seem to be involved in his fair share of bumps and scrapes. More than Kobi I'd say yet its the latter who has the rep for it.

He crashed in Singapore during 2010.Kamui only has a reputation for crashing because he overtakes outside the DRS zone, and isn't afraid. From memory, he's only been involved in an accident twice - Belgium '11 where he crashed with Hamilton, and Canada '10, where he crashed into the Wall of Champions.
Any others I've missed?
Checo seems to crash a lot more, and is therefore much less consistent with his points finishes.
The only two incidents I can really remember where Koba has taken someone else out were 2009 in Brazil, his first race, when he moved over a little late on Nakajima, and in Singapore when he and Schumacher came together.
It's a bad incident, but ultimately not a violent one or malicious. And has been said, Kamui's never repeated a move like that.
No, that's true. Toyota are lurking in motorsports but unlikely to come back into F1 at any meaningful level. I think he could easily be a contender for their LMP challengers in the years ahead, should Koba find himself out of F1 for any reason (one would hope not).I reckon he may well be at Sauber forever even If he beats Perez time and again.
He doesn't have any links, like Perez/Ferrari, Di Resta/Mercedes, Vergne/Red-Bull etc.
As for Kobash and his reputation for taking no prisoners, I'm pretty sure that was cemented at Suzuka 2010 when he used a couple different cars to slow himself down as he passed them in the hairpin.
Yay!As such, I expect to see Pérez pulling away from Kobayashi this year and you could see several teams chasing him for 2013.
I wouldn't like to see him move to Ferrari though. With Alonso there that would kill any chances he has of picking up wins and a WDC.
