New Delhi: Nico Hulkeberg will continue to race for Sahara Force India in the 2015 Formula One season, the team confirmed on Monday.

The 27-year-old German had returned to Force India at the start of 2014 after spending a year with Sauber and has enjoyed a reasonably good season, finishing among points in 13 races out of 16 so far.

Hulkenberg is lying eighth in the drivers' championship, having earned 76 points. Now it remains to be seen if Sergio Perez remains his team-mate or the Mexican moves elsewhere.

"It's good to confirm my plans for next season. 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," Hulkenberg said.

"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."

Team Principal Vijay Mallya said everybody in the team was delighted to see Hulkenberg remain a 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. 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," Mallya said.
