In a statement Sergio Pérez has confirmed that his journey with BWT Racing Point F1 team will end at the end of the 2020 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

Pérez has been with the team since the 2014 season, back when they were Force India. He has had six podiums with the team and consistently been in the top ten drivers.

There’s been rumours for months about whether or not Pérez will continue with the Silverstone outfit.

At this present moment, Pérez has no seat for 2021 but hopes to continue racing.

There has been no confirmation who will replace Pérez in 2021 however, Sebastian Vettel is favourite to take the seat.

Pérez statement says “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 with 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.

“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!”
