Sergio Perez extends F1 contract with Force India for 2019

Sergio Perez signs new Force India contract for F1 2019 season Formula 1: Force India confirms Sergio Perez for 2019 F1 season
Cassandra Castillo | 21 October, 2018, 00:41

Force India has announced a one-year extension for 2019 for Mexican driver Sergio Perez ahead of the US Grand Prix and next weekend's return to Mexico City.

The Mexican's renewed deal comes as no surprise given that Perez and his management were closely involved in the legal moves that led to the original team going into administration, and the subsequent purchases of the assets by the Racing Point consortium led by Lawrence Stroll.

Stroll's pending arrival means Force India effectively had to choose between their 2018 line-up, and Esteban Ocon is likely facing a year off the F1 grid as a result.

Sergio Perez will remain with Force India for a sixth season in 2019. Perez, 28, played a major role in events leading to the takeover of the team in August and has said for some time that he knew where he would be racing next year.

"I'm pleased that Sergio will continue his journey with us in 2019", said team boss Otmar Szafnauer.

Perez has had much success with the team and is considered a talented, if sometimes erratic, driver.

"I am very happy to finally announce my future and I'm really motivated for 2019", Perez said. His career-high finishes are second place finishes, which he recorded in the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix and the 2012 Italian Grand Prix when he was in his second and final season driving for Sauber. McLaren have meanwhile not had a top three finish since the opening race of 2014.

Perez is seventh in the championship as the best-placed driver outside of the sport's big three teams of Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull. He now sits in a tie for seventh place in the driver standings. He is part of Mercedes' driver development program and now ranks 11th in the standings after earning points in 10 races this season.
