Official: Force India confirms Perez for 2015


Sahara Force India has confirmed that Sergio Perez has extended his contract to continue racing with the team for 2015 and beyond.

The 24-year-old Mexican joined the team at the start of 2014 and enjoyed immediate success with a podium finish in only his third race. Since then, he has continued to demonstrate his speed by scoring points in eleven races so far this season.

"I am delighted that Checo will continue with us," said Dr Vijay Mallya, Team Principal and Managing Director. "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 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," added 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."
