Sergio Perez says he is confident that Force India can beat McLaren at this weekend's Singapore Grand Prix and re-claim fifth place in the Constructors' championship.

Perez edged out former team-mate Jenson Button in the battle for seventh position at Monza and the two squads are now separated in the teams' title race by just a single point, with McLaren ahead of Force India.

Perez is sure that an upgrade package on the VJM07 will allow Force India to pass McLaren.

"We are really optimistic for this weekend," he said.

"We have a good upgrade package and I believe we can be competitive and definitely our target is the McLarens which we are fighting with really closely and hopefully we can score more points than them this weekend with both cars and the upgrade package gives us some boost."

Perez is also hopeful that his future with Force India will be resolved soon, although remains wary of revealing too many details after his experience with McLaren in 2013.

"I think things are settling down and I think we should be very close to committing for next year with the team but you never know; I have experience from the past so you never know what's going to happen," he concluded.
