The Force India team has confirmed the re-signing of driver Sergio Perez to the team for the 2016 season.

The Mexican driver joined the Force India team in 2014 after completing a year at McLaren and is happy to continue his time with the Silverstone based team.

“I am very happy to confirm that I will be staying with Force India,” said Perez to Autosport. “It means I can simply focus on the important stuff – driving the car and scoring points for the team. “Since coming here I’ve really grown as a driver and I feel I’m performing at my best.

“I can feel the potential in the team and there is a good energy, which gives me confidence for next year. “I think we can continue to deliver strong results and I will do my best to help drive the team forward.”

Sergio Perez will be partnered by the already confirmed German driver Nico Hulkenberg for the 2016 season.
