Sergio Perez has said a move to Red Bull for the 2021 F1 season is an “option” for him, amid speculation he could replace Alexander Albon at the team.

However the Racing Point driver admitted he cannot take much longer to decide who he will drive for next year.

Asked whether a move to Red Bull is a possibility for him, Perez said: “I don’t rule them out, I think, at the moment.

“Until they’re not confirmed they’re an option, the same as every team that hasn’t confirmed. I think as the time is running there is very, very few opportunities to remain on the grid for next year.”

Asked whether he would accept a “number two” role alongside Red Bull’s star driver Max Verstappen, Perez said “I haven’t thought about it in detail.

“The number two status is given on track,” he said. “I would be very surprised if there is a team that when you come tells you that you are already a number two. I would be surprised on that, but obviously I don’t know how things work at Red Bull.”

Red Bull has indicated it intends to choose its drivers for 2021 in the near future. Perez said he will need to make his decision soon to avoid being left without a seat for next year.

“I think there is a very thin line in there,” he said. “There is a time where you take the risk, wait, and then see what happens.

“The season is coming to an end so I think it’s important for teams to know what’s going on, what’s happening going forward and for drivers too. I’m looking at all my possible options and I cannot take too long any more.”
