Force India on Friday announced that Adrian Sutil and Vitantonio Liuzzi will race for the Silverstone based team in 2010.

The same lineup contested the final five Grands Prix of the 2009 season, after Italian reserve driver Liuzzi, 28, was drafted in to replace the Ferrari-bound Giancarlo Fisichella.

2010 will be German Sutil's fourth season in Formula One, the 26-year-old having debuted with Force India's previous guise Spyker in 2007.

He had been speculatively linked with a move to Mercedes GP.

"For the first time in many years we will have the continuity of not only the same drivers, but also the same engine and senior management," said team boss Vijay Mallya.

Force India intends to select its new reserve driver "in the weeks" after Paul di Resta and JR Hildebrand's forthcoming test at Jerez, the team added.
