After weeks of speculation about the future of Racing Point's Sergio Perez and where he will end up, has finally been answered today. Perez wrote on Twitter telling the fans he will be departing with the team at the end of the 2020 season despite having signed a three-year contract just last year.
Sergio mentions in the tweet, "Hi all, Everything in life always has a beginning and an end, and after seven years together, my time with the team will come to an end after this season. It hurts a bit as I bet on the team during very rough times; we managed to overcome obstacles and I am very proud of saving the jobs of several of my teammates. I'll keep the memories of the great moments lived together, the friendships and the satisfaction of always giving my all. I will always be grateful for the opportunity given to me by Vijay Mallya, who believed in me in 2014 and allowed me to continue my F1 career in Force India; to the current administration, led by Lawrence Stroll, I wish nothing but the best in the future specially with the upcoming Aston Martin project"
To continue, "I don't have a Plan B. My intention is to continue racing here, but that would depend on finding a project that motivates me to continue giving my 100 percent in each lap; I want to thank each one of you who have been with me throughout these 10 years. To my family, who has always been there to support me despite anything; to all the sponsors who believed in my project, to my staff, and mainly God, who blessed me with the opportunity to live this incredible adventure called F1. I hope I can give you some good news real soon, but for now, let's enjoy together the next races. I carry you in my heart"
With Sergio departing with the team, speculations now rise on who will be getting that second Racing Point seat. Rumour has it that Sebastian Vettel will be the possible replacement as he will also be departing with Ferrari at the end of the season. In which case, it is plausible that he will be teammates with Lance Stroll.
