His team, Sauber, said the McLaren-bound Mexican has a heavy cold.

The Swiss squad's similarly Telmex-backed reserve driver Esteban Gutierrez, who is tipped to replace Perez full-time next season, is reportedly first in line to replace him.

Reuters and Sky said Sauber will decide early on Friday if Perez is well enough to drive.
