Mexican driver Sergio Perez has been retained by Force India for the 2016 Formula 1 season.

The 25-year-old, who started his career at Sauber in 2011, joined the team from McLaren at the start of last year.

Perez will once again partner Nico Hulkenberg, who had already signed a two-year deal with the team.

"He's done a fantastic job for us. When we give him a competitive car we know he can get the job done," Force India team principal Vijay Mallya said.

"He's also got a great attitude and never gives up - it's that fighting spirit which fits well with this team."

Perez, who finished seventh at last weekend's Singapore Grand Prix, is currently ninth in the drivers' championship with 39 points.
