Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ser­gio Perez will re­main with Force In­dia for at least one more sea­son af­ter sign­ing a new 12-month deal with the Sil­ver­stone team.

The Mex­i­can has been linked with moves away from the out­fit, but talks be­tween his com­mer­cial back­ers and Force In­dia – who had an op­tion on the 26-year-old for 2017 – proved fruit­ful.

Perez said: “I’m very happy with this team and I have a good feel­ing for the fu­ture. I’ve seen the progress we’ve made over the last cou­ple of years and I’m sure we have the po­ten­tial to achieve even more. I’m ex­cited for the rest of this sea­son, and for the chal­lenge that awaits all of us in 2017.”

Nico Hulken­berg will also re­main a Force In­dia driver for next year with 10 seats re­port­edly up for grabs on the F1 grid in 2017.

Perez joined Force In­dia in 2014.
