The highly-rated 27-year-old has enjoyed his best season to date, with points finishes in 13 races, including four fifth place finishes.

“Everybody in the team is delighted to see Nico remain a Sahara Force India driver for next season,” team principal and managing director Vijay Mallya said in a statement.

“We rate him very highly and he has done a tremendous job this year by consistently picking up crucial championship points. He’s a true racer and he knows how to motivate the team.”

Hulkenberg is eighth in the drivers’ standings this season, three places ahead of team mate Sergio Perez.
