Perez to consider options but wants Force India renewal

Written by  Aug 09, 2018

Sergio Perez admits he wants to remain at Force India in 2019 but will consider his options at other teams.

This week's news that the Silverstone-based squad has been bought by a consortium backed by Lawrence Stroll could have a negative impact on the Mexican, whose millions in sponsorship have been a vital source for income.

But with Lance Stroll likely to join from Williams and Mercedes potentially holding sway over the team retaining their junior driver Esteban Ocon, that could leave Perez without a seat.

"I'm lucky enough to have a couple of options," he said, with his backers usually the main influence in where the 28-year-old drives.

"Obviously we all want to be driving in the top two teams, Ferrari or Mercedes but it's very unlikely that I'll have an opportunity there for next year, so you have to look at what is the best option for your future where you can show your best talents."

Possible alternatives include former team McLaren, with the futures of both Stoffel Vandoorne and Fernando Alonso yet to be decided and possibly Williams with both seats there likely to go to the highest bidder.

Neither, however, have the appeal of Perez's current seat.

"The last two years, the best of the rest in the drivers' championship. I just want to see what's possible for next year, which teams have a vacancy, and then decide," he added.

"I will definitely wait to see what happens here because I believe this team has the most potential of anyone out there out of the top three teams."
