Force India has confirmed that Nico Hulkenberg will remain with the team until at least the end of the 2017 season.

Hulkenberg, 28, made his Formula 1 debut with Williams in 2010 before moving to a reserve role at Force India in 2011.

Hulkenberg was promoted to a race seat for 2012 and returned to the squad ahead of the 2014 campaign, having spent 2013 with midfield rivals Sauber.

"I’m very pleased to finalise and announce my plans for the future," said Le Mans victor Hulkenberg.

"I know this team inside out and I feel at home here so it made perfect sense to make a long-term commitment. The progress the team has shown over the last two years has really impressed me and gives me confidence for the future.

"It’s a great group of people who are hungry for success and want to keep improving year-on-year.

"I think we have the important things in place going forward and I want to continue growing with this team as we move even further up the grid."

Hulkenberg's current team-mate, Sergio Perez, is also expected to remain with the squad.
