Force India confirm that Sergio Perez will retain his seat for the 2016 Formula 1 season.

Force India have confirmed that Sergio Perez will continue driving for the team in the 2016 Formula 1 season.

The 25-year-old, who moved to the team from McLaren for the 2014 campaign, will join up with Nico Hulkenberg for a third year in a row.

"I am very happy to confirm that I will be staying with Sahara Force India," Perez said on the team's official website. "It means I can simply focus on the important stuff - driving the car and scoring points for the team.

"Since coming here I've really grown as a driver and I feel I'm performing at my best. I've always said I want to establish myself in a team and it's the right moment to announce my commitment for the future with Sahara Force India.

"I can feel the potential in the team and there is a good energy, which gives me confidence for next year. I think we can continue to deliver strong results and I will do my best to help drive the team forward."

Perez began his F1 career in 2011 at Sauber.
