Force India confirms Perez and Hulkenberg for 2017 F1

Force India F1 team owner Vijay Mallya has confirmed Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg will stays at team’s driver line-up for 2017 F1.

“I can confirm that both the drivers are signed up for 2017,” Mallya told Reuters at the British Grand Prix.

“They are a fine pair, both absolutely top class. I’ve never believed in ‘pay drivers’ where talent or ability is compromised,” he added.

“I always try to hire the best drivers we can afford. I am very happy with both Checo and Nico.”

Perez has been on the podium twice this season, in Monaco and Azerbaijan, while Hulkenberg qualified on the front row in Austria last weekend.

Force India, who have Mercedes engines, are currently fifth in the championship.

Perez had been linked in media speculation to Ferrari but that possibility closed on Friday when the Italian team announced Finland’s 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen was staying for another season.
