Perez in a very difficult position to secure F1 drive for 2014
14 November, 2013
Sergio Perez, who took it upon himself to reveal he has been dropped by McLaren, has admitted thatthe British team’s late decision had left him in a very difficult position when it comes to finding another seat for next season.
“Obviously the decision came very late and it puts me in a very difficult position, but this is life and I have to move forward,” he said in Austin.
23-year-old Perez, who after two years with Sauber was signed by McLaren for 2013, said the decision is so late that he might have to leave Formula 1 altogether.
“If I don’t find the right option for my career then maybe I will look for something else, but the aim is to look for something good with a good team that can give me the opportunity to win races,” he said.
Perez has had backing from Telmex for most of his career, however it is not certain whether he can count on their support beyond this season when the Mexican telcoms giant is expected to become title sponsor of McLaren.
Perez enjoyed a good stint at Sauber and a return is not out of the question, while seats with Lotus and Force India are yet to be filled. (GMM)
