Sergio Perez says the air has been "totally cleared" between himself and Racing Point following the Mexican driver's comments claiming his team was "hiding things" from him.

On Thursday at Sochi, Perez told the media that certain members of Racing Point were deliberately limiting his access to some information as a result of him departing the team at the end of the year.

But Perez pleaded for transparency to help Racing Point in its fight to finish third in the Constructors' standings.

In a post on social media on Friday morning, Perez said he had spoken to his team about his comments and had subsequently cleared the air.

"I have known this team for seven years and they are like family," Perez wrote.

"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 8th [sic] final races together."

Next year, Perez will make way for Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin Racing but the Mexican is doing his best to remain on the grid in 2021, with Haas and Alfa Romeo seen as his only viable options.

"There has been obviously contact with a couple of teams and talks," he said.

"I think in the next week or so, I will know exactly what is a realistic option, and what isn’t. But obviously that is something I will keep between the teams and myself.

"I think everyone deserves the respect. They have current drivers, they have current discussions. It’s something I will definitely keep for myself."
