Perez wants podiums in 2021 otherwise he'll leave Formula 1

Sergio Perez is becoming one of the most experienced drivers on the current Formula 1 grid. Now aged 29, the Mexican is heading into his peak and says if the rule and regulation overhaul doesn't produce podiums for him, then he won't stay in F1 for much longer.

The SportPesa Racing Point driver is one of the few drivers outside the big three teams who have stepped on the Formula 1 podium in the current era. Perez has often expressed his frustration about not being able to achieve a podium finish. 

“You never know what can happen in Formula 1. I certainly know I will not stay here for many more years – certainly less than what I’ve done in Formula 1 already. I’ve been here a while," Perez told Racer.

"So you never know, but I say to myself that if by 2021 I’m not in contention for podiums and I don’t see it that I’m going to have that opportunity, then I will not be here beyond that."
