  • Sergio Perez to stay at Force India with Esteban Ocon in 2018 meaning an unchanged line up next season

Force India also re-confirmed that Esteban Ocon will remain with them, although it had already been announced last year that he was on a "multi-year deal" when he joined the squad following a part-season with Manor.

"Staying with Sahara Force India was always my priority", he said in a statement ahead of Sunday's Singapore GP. "It's a team that has allowed me to show my talents as a driver and I feel very happy here", Perez said.

Perez now sits seventh in the drivers' championship - the same position he secured last season - and Force India team principal Vijay Mallya says the consistency provided by the drivers is crucial to trying to continue his team's success.

Following last month's Belgian Grand Prix, in which they came together on two occasions, the duo were barred from racing each other without team orders.

The Mexican added: "I'm proud of everything we have achieved and I think there is more to come".

Security officers surrounded the plane as it was held on the tarmac at Charles de Gualle airport at around 7.45am. Speaking to the Daily Star Online, Mr Anderson said: "Initially the pilot told us there were technical issues".


Force India team principal and managing director Vijay Mallya called Perez "one of the quickest and most consistent drivers on the grid". His track record speaks for itself as the most successful Force India driver ever with four podiums.

Force India finished in their best-ever position of fourth in the constructors' championship previous year, and are on course to repeat it in 2017.

The 27-year-old, who had been in the frame for a Renault drive before the French team committed to Carlos Sainz, said staying was an "easy decision".

Despite their limited financial muscle they appear on course to finish fourth in the constructors' standings - behind only Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull - for a second straight year.

"Alongside Esteban, retaining Sergio gives us stability going into next season and one of the most exciting driver pairings in Formula One".
