Perez leaving Ferrari future open

Jul.8 (GMM) Sergio Perez is still leaving the door open to a move away from Force India for 2017.

The Mexican is in top form this year, triggering widespread speculation that Ferrari could buy him out of his contract with the Silverstone based team.

“I’ve said several times that I have not decided my future and when I do, I will let you know,” Perez was quoted by the Spanish sports newspaper Marca at Silverstone.

He said the time is not right to be embroiled in talks about the future.

“I am concentrating on these three races before the summer (break) which is an important moment for as in our fight with Williams,” said Perez.

“Outside of that, I’m in a good position,” he admitted.

“At some point I will see what options I have on the market and make the best decision, but it’s a good situation to have options.”

When asked specifically if he has received an offer from Ferrari, Perez answered: “Today there is nothing, but if there is something more in the future, I don’t know.”
