Renault was a “serious option” for 2016 says Perez

Force India has ended speculation it may lose Sergio Perez and his Mexican backing to the new Renault works team in 2016.

Reports this week suggested the 25-year-old could be set to replace the Haas-bound Romain Grosjean at Enstone.

But at Suzuka ahead of the Japanese grand prix, Force India said Perez is staying put.

“I’ve always said I want to establish myself in a team and it’s the right moment to announce my commitment for the future,” the former Sauber and McLaren driver said.

Speaking to reporters at Suzuka, Perez admitted that Renault was a “serious option” for 2016, but he is ultimately “very happy” to stay at Silverstone for a third consecutive year.

“You always listen to other options and offers, so if Renault come they are an attractive team, but at the moment I knew that the best for me is staying here,” he insisted. (GMM)
