Sergio Perez is not too disheartened about losing the prospect of racing in a home Grand Prix in Formula One next season.

Despite being included in the draft 2014 calendar, the Mexican Grand Prix was omitted from the final set schedule following a meeting by the FIA World Motor Sport Council on Wednesday.

The Mexican Grand Prix organisers always had their work cut out to complete major upgrade works at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit.

That time frame appears to be the major reason behind dropping it for 2014, but Mexican driver Sergio Perez is confident it could finally make its return to Formula One in 2015.

‘I was expecting it, so I am not that disappointing, But I believe that 2015 it can really happen. Perez told Autosport Magazine.

‘We are a lot closer right now than we were a couple of months ago. I have big hopes that 2015 can be when Mexico will happen.

Sergio Perez is set to leave McLaren at the end of the 2013 calendar year after one unsuccessful season with the team.

He is expected to join Nico Hulkenberg at Force India for next season, although this is yet to be confirmed by either the team or the driver.

Another option could be to re-join Sauber after leaving them at the end of 2012.
