Sergio Perez has said it is “obvious” who would have to leave Racing Point if the team opts to sign Sebastian Vettel for the 2021 Formula 1 season.
Four-time World Champion Vettel has been left without a seat after Ferrari dumped him without offering a new deal.
365体育投注APPSeveral other doors have closed including at McLaren and Renault, whilst Red Bull insists it is happy with Max Verstappen and Alexander Albon, which is the same story at Mercedes, though it has yet to agree new deals with both Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton.
That’s left Vettel with very few options, but as Racing Point will become a full works team next year under the Aston Martin banner and is enjoying improved form at present, it could be an attractive opportunity.
365体育投注APPDiscussions are known to have taken place between the two parties, leading to questions over who would make way for Vettel, but Perez says it’s a question with an easy answer given his team-mate is the son of the team’s boss.
“I think it [who leaves] is obvious if someone has to go,” Perez told Movistar+ F1.
365体育投注APP“I’m a dad, I wouldn’t kick my son out, but there’s not much I can say.
365体育投注APP“There are many [rumours] around. From me, nothing. Everything remains the same. I have a contract with the team.”
Perez is hopeful of remaining but admitted his contract does contain a break clause: “In all contracts, there are always clauses,” added the Mexican.
“It is a bit related to sponsorship. That can open that clause. But we’re working hard with all our sponsors so that this does not happen.”
