The 2014 Formula One World Championship may well have only just come to its climax, but the world of F1 never stops.

The attention of the Formula One paddock has already switched to 2015.

Testing in Abu Dhabi ahead of next season begins this week, whilst the futures of a number of drivers have also yet to be decided.

But one driver whose future has already been secured is that of Sergio Perez.

During the race weekend in Abu Dhabi, Force India decided that now was the right time to confirm that the Mexican driver had signed a new multi-year contract with the team.

With Nico Hulkenberg already signed for 2015, this confirms an un-changed Force India line-up for next season.

Alongside the deal for Perez, Force India have also confirmed a new sponsorship deal with Mexican telecommunications giant America Movil, whose subsidiaries include Telmex and Claro.

?It?s good to announce my plans. As soon as I joined Sahara Force India, I noticed the hunger and determination of everyone in the team, and I?m very proud to be part of that,’ Perez said in a statement.

‘I feel at home here and I?m fully committed. I?m enjoying my racing and we?ve already celebrated some special results together. It?s important for me to establish myself in a team and have some continuity. The team have given me a competitive car this year and I believe we can continue to achieve great things together in the future.?
