If Formula 1 needs a reminder of its ruthlessness, consider Sergio Perez. Just over two years ago, he triggered the action that helped save what was then called Force India, with the separate entity its assets were transferred to becoming the current Racing Point squad.
In 2021, that team will become known as Aston Martin. And its drivers will be Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel. Perez finds himself heading out of the squad where he has raced since 2014 and which he can legitimately say he helped to save.
"Everybody at Racing Point would like to thank Sergio for his hard work and dedication over the years, and wish him every success in the future," read a press release announcing the news.
