Sergio Perez has been left out in the cold by Racing Point and his Formula 1 future beyond the end of this season is now far from certain.

Despite signing fresh terms last year to remain with the Silverstone outfit until 2022, Perez’s contract was cut short by two years last Wednesday when he received an unexpected call from team owner Lawrence Stroll informing him that he had lost his seat to Sebastian Vettelfor 2021.

The Mexican was left understandably “hurt” in his announcement and revealed he had heard nothing from Racing Point to suggest he would not be driving for the team next year until last Wednesday.

It appears ruthless at best for Racing Point to so readily discard a driver who has been loyal to the cause both on and off the track, and provided the team with some fantastic performances that has seen Perez earn the reputation for being one of the strongest, and most consistent, drivers in the midfield.

Given the timing of the decision, there are few remaining options left for him on the F1 grid, and certainly no front-running drives available. It took Perez by surprise and gave him no chance to come up with a Plan B, but he remains determined to stay.

So, where does Perez’s future now lie? That is what we have adressed in our latest video below...
