Date published: August 24 2017 - Editor

Sergio Perez has revealed that his future is "quite close" to being resolved and is expecting an announcement by mid-September.

Perez has spent the last four seasons with Force India and is set to extend his stay by another year after being linked with the likes of Renault earlier in the year.

“I’m quite close,” Pérez said when asked if a new contract had been agreed.

“As you know every deal I do involves my Mexican sponsors, right now they are in discussions, hopefully soon we can be in a position to announce something.

“I think between now and hopefully once we go into Asia I [can] have my future secured.

“But, I’m in no hurry, I know that I’m in a good position so I want to focus basically on extracting the performance from the car and having a good weekend.”
