formula 1 driver Sergio Perez (30) has been very reticent about his future at Racing Point, and thus the speculation of Sebastian Vettel (33) fired. This could take the place of the Mexican in the Team, in the coming year as the Aston Martin at the Start.

“I have a contract,” said Perez on the Thursday before the Hungarian Grand Prix (Sunday, 15.10 PM/RTL and Sky): “time will give answers, we’ll see what the next few weeks.”

Perez has a long-term contract, this includes, according to a report by the Bild-Zeitung but a Severance clause, which can be until the end of July. Vettel, who needs to go to the season at Ferrari, could then take over and the Start of the project, the Aston Martin a lot of Publicity bring.

“It’s a good, if big names are associated with the Team,” said Perez, “this means that we have made progress. The Team can be proud of.” In the direction of the four-time world champion Vettel, he is not suppressed but are a bit: “He has achieved a lot in this Sport. He had in his career, of course, the great fortune to sit in great cars, but no one can take away his achievements.”

Should be replaced by Perez in fact, for Vettel, it would be for the Mexican a heavy blow. For years, he brings to the midfield team, which was previously Force India, good results. However, it would make him. Be less successful team mate is Lance Stroll and is the son of the billion-dollar Team majority owner Lawrence Stroll.
