Force India driver Sergio Perez says that his experience with McLaren has made him a better driver.

Perez raced for McLaren in 2013 but finished only 11th in the championship as the team endured one of their worst seasons in history.

Perez nonetheless believes that learning from his struggles in 2013 will aid him this season.

"I've got good experience from my Sauber days and also now from McLaren," he said.

"The experience of 2013 made me a better driver, more complete in many areas, and I'm really hungry for success. I will be giving my maximum and I'm sure that people will be surprised by what I can do in 2014."

"I'm coming from a very difficult season with McLaren, with a very difficult car, but I'm very confident that I will be quite strong."

"Together with the team we will all be working very hard to have the success that we all want to have."

Perez also reckon that the early season races will provide Force India with the best opportunity of scoring big points.

"It's a very big opportunity for us, as a smaller team, to really do well, especially in the first few races," he said of the new regulations.
