The 24-year-old Mexican joined the team at the start of 2014...
As expected, Force India confirmed today that Sergio Perez will remain with the team next season, with what it calls a “multi-year” contract.
The team took up its option on the Mexican in July, but talks continued over the detailz of the contract, which led to the delay.
“He’s a true racer who has done a fantastic job for us this season,” said Vijay Mallya. “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 Formula One 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 Checo’s first home Grand Prix in Mexico in front of his huge following of passionate fans.”
“It’s good to announce my plans,” said Perez. “As soon as I joined Sahara 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. It’s important for me to establish myself in a team and have some continuity. The team have given me a competitive car this year and I believe we can continue to achieve great things together in the future.”
