Force India have confirmed that Nico Hulkenberg will return to the team next season.

The 26-year-old German joined the Britain-based outfit in 2011 before leaving for Sauber ahead of the 2013 campaign.

Hulkenberg, who finished in 10th place last season, has signed a "multi-year deal" with the team.

"I am happy to come back to Sahara Force India," he told Force India's official website.

"The team is aiming high for next year and I believe that the experience I have gained over the years will help us achieve those goals.

"I genuinely believe we can have a competitive package in 2014."

Hulkenberg has failed to make it onto the podium in any of his previous 58 races in Formula 1.
