Sergio Perez looked elsewhere before deciding to stay at Racing Point

Sergio Perez has revealed that he has received offers from other Formula 1 teams and that he had looked at moving teams before deciding to stay with Racing Point. The Mexican driver has driven for a few teams but is hopeful of helping get Racing Point higher up the grid in years to come. 

“To be honest, yeah (I’ve looked elsewhere)," Perez said to Racer.com. "During the last couple of years I’ve always done single-year contracts, and thankfully there have always been opportunities here and there.

"In the end, I always end up staying, and now I’m pleased that other teams have come and asked, and there has been some interest out there. But my main priority will be to stay. If I am able to succeed with that, I will be pleased. If not, then we will see what happens.”

Perez will hope that Racing Point becomes more competitive and that he can lead the team to success in the future.
