- Mexican Sergio Perez expects to stay with Force India next season and hopes that a deal for 2015 is announced in the next month.

Perez joined Force India this year after losing his drive at McLaren.

On the eve of this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix on Thursday, Perez said: "Nothing confirmed yet, but we should be sorted for next year in the next couple of weeks and then let's see.

"On my side, it's a bit early to confirm anything, but I expect things are going to move on very quickly."

After his experience at McLaren, where he found out he would not be driving for the team in 2014 very late in the 2013 season, he said he did not want to tempt fate.

"You've seen in the past that anything can happen. Everything was pretty much there and it changed pretty quickly, so nothing is confirmed yet."
