Sergio Perez wants the FIA to be more consistent in handing out penalties for bad conduct in Formula 1 because he thinks some drivers are getting away with too much.
In the wake of Romain Grosjean's race ban for the Italian Grand Prix for causing a multi-car pile-up in Belgium last weekend, Perez thinks there should be a fresh push to ensure a better code of conduct.
"The penalty the FIA and stewards decided to give to Grosjean, is a good sign for all of us to respect each other more, because in the past there has been too much disrespect," said the Sauber driver.
"I'm not saying it's all the drivers, but there are a few out there that you cannot really fight for position. There are always some drivers that are out of control out there, but I think this will help to prevent the drivers from doing crazy things.
"Spa was a big crash, but there are some drivers who have so many penalties during the year, and every race they are crashing into someone. They ruin the race of other people and they just get a fine or grid position [penalty], so I think we have to do a procedure to be more consistent with the penalties.
"I think this is the most important thing for us to try and do: a system that can bring us into a much more consistent rule that if you do something really wrong, you really pay. But in a consistent way."
Perez believes that the only penalty that will make a driver stop and think about his behavior is a race ban.
"When they give you a fine it always helps, but at the end you don't lose position for the next race or you don't get a race ban. But I think it is now time to try and do a system where if you do something wrong, you pay in a consistent way.
"Maybe you do one race where you get lucky and get fined, but at the other race you will not get so lucky and have a very big penalty. So I think we need a consistent penalty and that is something that we have to work for."
