With his Formula 1 future on the ropes and no place on the 2021 starting grid, Sergio Perez is relaxed at the Nurburgring saying he is in no rush to find a new contract.
The Mexican driver will be replaced by Sebastian Vettel next year. Few teams have not yet decided the final line-up of the 2021 season and among them are Haas and Alfa Romeo, AlphaTauri and Red Bull Racing.
There is talk of a possible opening regarding Red Bull Racing. In fact, he was asked many questions on the subject.
After asking him if he would let Red Bull know he is available for the next season, Sergio Perez affirmed: “I’m sure they know! Right now it’s just a matter of keeping all the doors open and being patient as well. I’m in no hurry, so let’s see what comes up in the next couple of weeks.
“Right now, I’m fully focused on this season with my team, I think we’ve made some really good progress, we’re getting my season back on track and I just want to deliver weekend after weekend. We are close to third in the constructors’ championship so that is the focus right now. The future is a matter of time and to be honest, I don’t have a lot more to say.
“I’m trying to work around the options that are out there. I don’t really have anything to report at the moment. I hope in the coming weeks things will get a bit clearer and then I will know what will happen with my future. I’m pretty relaxed about it, as I said.” he stated.
Moreover, this weekend Perez will receive an upgrade that was planned for the Russian GP but which was delayed due to the crash of his teammate, Lance Stroll, at Mugello during the Tuscan Grand Prix.
“I think we’ve been pretty unlucky in the last couple of races with how everything has panned out, missing two races as well. Now, all of a sudden, my season gets a bit more on the way and we are close to where we should be. I’m looking forward to scoring weekend after weekend.” he concluded.
In addiction, Perez is one of the drivers who had previously race at Nurburgring, finishing eighth aboard McLaren in 2013.
