Perez willing to look outside F1

Perez willing to look outside F1

Outgoing McLaren driver Sergio Perez has revealed that he is considering racing outside of Formula One in 2014.

The Mexican announced on Twitter earlier this week that he would be leaving the Woking team after just one season, but admitted that McLaren's decision to drop him in favour of the 21-year-old Dane Kevin Magnussen has left him in a "difficult" position.

"If I'm very honest I haven't had the chance yet to get fully into that [McLaren's reasoning]. The decision was taken very late which unfortunately puts me in a difficult position for my future," the 23-year-old told Sky Sports ahead of this weekend's US Grand Prix.

"But McLaren has their own decisions, they know what they are doing and it's better you ask them."

The Mexican's departure from McLaren means he has joined the complex driver market for next year, with Force India, a return to Sauber or even Lotus possible destinations for the 23-year-old.

"I would not be in Formula 1 just to be in Formula 1. If I don't find the right option for my career maybe I will look for something else," he added.

"If I look back I did my best, I tried to give my very best to take the most out of the chance that I had.

"I probably came at the worst possible year in history to McLaren. But that's life and I look forward."
