Perez: I'll soond decide on future

Sergio Perez says he sees no reason why he should leave Sauber, although a decision about his future has still to be taken
Sergio Perez says he will make a decision soon on his future with the Sauber team, although the Mexican insists he currently sees no reason why he should leave.

The Mexican has enjoyed a solid season so far, with podium finishes in Malaysia and Canada helping him to sit ninth in the championship standings ahead of the resumption of racing this weekend at Spa.

The youngster has been mentioned as one possible option for Ferrari if the team was to replace Felipe Massa at the end of the season but Perez said there had been no contact from the team over the summer and the time was getting closer for him to make a decision over his future.

"No, not really,” he told the Press Association when asked if there was further interest from Ferrari. "Nothing has changed in the last month.

"It's getting closer to when I have to make a decision, whether I stay with the team or if I will leave. It's still a bit early, but it has to be made quite soon, in the next weeks, although I'm not really worried about it. I'm in a good position, and I'm just thinking about the second half of the season, which is the most important for me.

"But I need to speak to my people to see what is going to happen about my future."

Staying with Sauber would now appear to be Perez's best option for the 2013 campaign and the former GP2 racer said he saw no reason why he shouldn't stay for another season.

"Sauber is a great team doing a fantastic job,” he said. "When I go to the factory and I see the people so motivated every day, I don't see any reason why I want to leave. I'm happy here, every day I'm more comfortable, and I think they can build a good car for next year, so as I say, I don't see any reason to step away from it."
