Force India confirm Perez


Force India will continue with an unchanged line-up in 2015 after finally confirming Sergio Perez for the 2015 campaign.

The Silverstone squad announced back in October that Nico Hulkenberg would remain with them and team principal Vijay Mallya indicated that they plan to keep Perez as well.

However, it took them just over a month to finally make it official after the Mexican signed a “multi-year contract”.

“I am delighted that Checo will continue with us,” Mallya said. “He’s a true racer who has done a fantastic job for us this season. The whole team has been impressed with his speed and racecraft, as well as his role away from the track.

“He has a very bright future in F1 and we will do our utmost to give him the equipment to match his talent. I look forward to celebrating more strong results with Checo this year and in years to come, and I cannot wait for his first home grand prix in Mexico in front of his huge following of passionate fans.”

Perez said: “It’s good to announce my plans. As soon as I joined Force India, I noticed the hunger and determination of everyone in the team, and I’m very proud to be part of that.

“I feel at home here and I’m fully committed. I’m enjoying my racing and we’ve already celebrated some special results together.”
