Force India team principal Vijay Mallya says he has no reason to look beyond his current drivers when it comes to deciding on his line-up beyond the 2015 F1 season.

After teaming up in 2014, Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez continued with Force India for 2015 and though the outfit has endured a tricky start to the season as it works hard to bring out its B-spec car for the British Grand Prix, both drivers have impressed the powers that be.

Indeed, following Perez's seventh place finish in the Monaco Grand Prix - a result that places Force India sixth in the constructors' standings ahead of Lotus and Toro Rosso -, Mallya says his drivers' performances so far in 2015 in the circumstances means that, as it stands, he has no reason to believe they won't remain next year.

"I have always said that I am delighted to have Nico and Checo as my drivers," he told the official F1 website. "They are both highly talented and competent drivers. I am proud that Force India always has great talent in our driver line-up.

"Just remember that Nico scored points in nearly every race last year and Checo was on the podium in Bahrain. Were it not for our handicapped start to 2015 I guess we would have seen more of that this season. The chances that I will keep them are absolutely very high.

"I make no bones about it: I like these two guys. I respect them a lot. So there is no reason for me to make a change."
