Force India Team Principal Vijay Mallya says he is sure the squad will make huge progress when its upgraded car is introduced and says that there is no reason for the outfit to change its driver line-up next season.

Force India has had a comparatively quiet start to 2015 due to its undeveloped VJM08, which will be heavily revised ahead of the British Grand Prix.

Mallya reckons that once the squad introduces its extensive upgrade package, both Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez will be able to demonstrate their talent on a regular basis.

"I have always said that I am delighted to have Nico and Checo as my drivers," Mallya told the Official F1 website.

"They are both highly talented and competent drivers. I am proud that Force India always has great talent in our driver line-up.

"Just remember that Nico scored points in nearly every race last year and Checo was on the podium in Bahrain. Were it not for our handicapped start to 2015 I guess we would have seen more of that this season.

"The chances that I will keep them are absolutely very high. I make no bones about it: I like these two guys. I respect them a lot. So there is no reason for me to make a change."
