Sergio Perez to stay with Force India for 2018 F1 season

The confirmation of Perez means Force India will field an unchanged driver line-up in 2018, with Esteban Ocon already confirmed on a multi-year contract.

Sergio Perez has signed a contract extension to remain with Force India for the 2018 Formula One season.

"Staying with Sahara Force India was always my priority". The Mexican driver has clinched four podiums since joining Force India and narrowly missed out on the rostrum at the Spanish Grand Prix this year with his fourth place finish.

Perez, who is set for a fifth season with the Silverstone squad, had said earlier in the week that he had two options for next year. "The team have allowed me to show my talents as a driver and I feel very happy here".

The friction began at the Canadian GP, prior to Baku, when Ocon was exasperated at his team's decision not to let him overtake Perez.

It remains to be seen whether Perez will remain with Force India beyond 2018, as it is likely positions at Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull will open up at that time. I'm proud of everything we have already achieved together and I think there is more to come.
