On Thursday Force India announced that Sergio Perez will fill out their driver lineup for the 2014 Formula 1 season alongside teammate Nico Hulkenberg. Paul di Resta and Adrian Sutil were the team's drivers in the 2013 season. Perez signed a multi-year deal.

The 23-year-old Mexican driver will be entering his fourth full season in F1. In 2011 Perez scored 14 championship points in his rookie season with Sauber. In 2012 he scored three podium finishes for Sauber and had 66 points which was tenth overall. In 2013 Perez moved to McLaren where he finished 11th in points with 49 points.

Kevin Magnussen was named as Perez's replacement at McLaren forcing Perez to find a new team.

“It’s great to announce my new team as Sahara Force India,” said Perez. “Coming here was always my first choice and I’m really happy everything has now been confirmed. I want to say thank you to Vijay (Mallya) and the whole team for giving me the opportunity. This is a young team with a lot of determination and they’ve produced competitive cars for the last few years. It’s all change for next season with the new regulations, but I already have a good feeling about 2014. My plan now is to visit the factory and get to know everyone in the team.”
 
The two new drivers behind the wheel for Force India in 2014 will be the first time since 2005, when the team was still called Jordan, that they have replaced both drivers entering a season.
