Perez says 'the air is totally clear' after Racing Point talks

Sergio Perez has held clear-the-air talks with his Racing Point team after stating that some of his colleagues had been "hiding things" from him following the announcement that he will not be kept on.

Perez was told prior to the Tuscan Grand Prix this month that he had lost his seat for the 2021 Formula One season, when Sebastian Vettel will replace him.

The Mexican told the media ahead of the Russian Grand Prix that he had not been kept in the loop by team members since it was confirmed he will depart.

However, Perez on Friday revealed all is well between the two parties following discussions in Russia.

He posted on Twitter: "I have known this team for seven years and they are like family. I have spoken to the team and they accept my explanation.

"There's no way after seven years we can finish in bad terms, the air is totally cleared.

"And we all move forwards now. We all want the same thing: to score as many points and be successful in our remaining races together.

"We will push and go for more podiums in this eight final races together."
