Perez signs with Force India

Perez signs with Force India

Sergio Perez has been unveiled as Nico Hulkenberg's partner at Force India for the 2014 season.

The Mexican joined McLaren from Sauber at the start of the year, but was left without a drive when Formula Renault 3.5 champion Kevin Magnussen was preferred instead.

Perez has been strongly linked to Force India in recent weeks, and Autosport reports that he brings a commercial package believed to be worth around 15 million euro.

"It's great to announce my new team as Force India," said Perez. "Coming here was always my first choice and I'm really happy everything has now been confirmed.

"I want to say thank you to Vijay and the whole team for giving me the opportunity.

"This is a young team with a lot of determination and they've produced competitive cars for the last few years.

"It's all change for next season with the new regulations, but I already have a good feeling about 2014. My plan now is to visit the factory and get to know everyone in the team."

With Perez and Hulkenberg now confirmed, that leaves 2013 Force India drivers Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta currently with no home in the sport.

Sutil is still in the running for a seat at Sauber, but Di Resta appears likely to fall off the grid in 2014.
