The Force India F1 Team has confirmed that it will retain Nico Hulkenberg for the 2015 season.
Hulkenberg rejoined the team this season after a year with Sauber, and will remain with the Silverstone-based squad for a full third campaign in 2015.
The German has scored points in 13 of the 16 races this year, including four top five finishes, in what has been the most successful season in Force India’s history.
“It’s good to confirm my plans for next season,” Hulkenberg said. “This is a team I know extremely well and we’ve enjoyed a great year together with some special results.
“The team has big ambitions and I believe we can have a competitive package once again next year.
“We have a strong partner in Mercedes and everyone in the team is motivated and hungry for more success.
“I have a good feeling for 2015 and there is a lot to be excited about as we try to build on the results we have achieved this year.”
Force India team principal and managing director Vijay Mallya added: “Everybody in the team is delighted to see Nico remain a Sahara Force India driver for next season.
“We rate him very highly and he has done a tremendous job this year by consistently picking up crucial championship points.
“We know him extremely well: he’s a true racer and he knows how to motivate the team,” Mallya added.
“I am convinced he is one of the best talents on the grid and I am proud that he will continue to race in the colours of Sahara Force India.”
