Sergio Perez says he is 'very close' to agreeing the terms of a new deal that will see him remain with Force India for the 2015 Formula 1 World Championship.

With current team-mate Nico Hulkenberg confirmed as staying with Force India ahead of the United States Grand Prix, team manager Vijay Mallya has frequently expressed a desire to retain an unchanged driver line-up for 2015.

With this in mind, Perez is hopeful he can announce his own deal soon as he looks to establish some stability in a single place having previous driven for Sauber and McLaren over the last four seasons.

"It is close to the end to the season so we are to sorting a deal with the team," he said. "I want to stay longer in the team and establish myself [because] I have spent 4 years in Formula 1 and I have moved around too much so I want to do a second year with the team and hat is my target. Hopefully everything goes right and we can announce things soon."

Should Perez indeed go on to secure an extended stay in F1, he will be present for the sport's scheduled return to Mexico in 2015 at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit. It is an event he believes will be a big success for F1.

"There is a lot of emphasis back home and the people are really excited to have the Grand Prix. The circuit is being rebuilt and there was an event a couple of weeks ago, so things are moving on very quickly. It will be a very nice event."
