The Mexican, who will be replaced by Sebastian Vettel in 2021 as Racing Point becomes Aston Martin F1 Team, said ahead of this weekend’s Russian Grand Prix that “some people inside the team tend to hide things, which I don’t think is great”.

But on social media on Friday morning, ahead of practice for the race, Perez moved to explain the situation and diffuse any tension.

“I have known this team for seven years and they are like family,” he said. “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.”
