Perez: Racing Point would allow move up the grid

Sergio Perez believes that Racing Point would allow him to talk with a more competitive Formula 1 team if the opportunity arose in the future.

Last week, the Mexican was handed a new three-year deal with Racing Point, as he continues his allegiance with the team which stretches back through their Force India days.

He is recognised as one of the most consistent performers on the grid, but has never been given an opportunity with a ‘top’ team such as Mercedes, Ferrari, or Red Bull.

If one of them was to come calling in a season or two, though, there is no doubt in his mind that Racing Point would allow the negotiations.

“I know that there might be some movement around [in 2021],” Perez told the official F1 site.

“But I’ve been so long in this team that if a big opportunity came up definitely the team will be happy to consider it.

“That for me is not a concern. It’s more to work together for the next three years and we have big targets to achieve.”

Perez recognises that such a move may never happen, but for now he remains happy competing for Racing Point.

“I am realistic,” continued.

“There’s no point right now for me to say that I’m going to have a chance with Mercedes or Ferrari for next year. There were years that I was close. It hasn’t been for the last years.

“I have an opportunity with a team I can grow with. So why not? You see these days that it’s difficult for people to find a team where they feel comfortable, not just with the racing side, but the project the team has, that was important for me.

“I’m not saying the opportunity with a top team will not happen anymore as you never know what will happen in Formula 1, but I’m just pleased I have a long—term deal with a team that has a big future ahead.”
