SUZUKA, Japan (Reuters) - Mexican Sergio Perez will race for the Force India Formula One team again next season in an unchanged lineup with Germany's Nico Hulkenberg.

"I am very happy to confirm that I will be staying with Sahara Force India. It means I can simply focus on the important stuff -- driving the car and scoring points for the team," the 25-year-old said in a team statement on Thursday.

Hulkenberg's extension had already been announced.
