As reported on Monday, Nico Hulkenberg is staying with Force India.

The Silverstone based team announced on Tuesday that the German has signed up for 2016 and 2017.

2015 Le Mans winner Hulkenberg, 28, had been linked with a move to Haas or Lotus, but said: "I know this team inside out and I feel at home here so it made perfect sense to make a long term commitment."

The media statement did not mention Hulkenberg's current teammate, Sergio Perez, although team boss Vijay Mallya has said he also wants to keep the Mexican.
