Sergio Perez was announced as Force India’s new driver, but is the Mexican racer already getting itchy feet?

The twenty-three-year-old lost his drive with McLaren less than a month ago and Perez is determined to prove he deserves another chance with a front-running Formula One team.

For now, the Mexican’s immediate future lies with Force India, the British-based team who were ranked as 2013’s fifth fastest team before the introduction of new Pirelli tires halfway through the season saw their early season form fade.

The team, overseen by Indian tycoon Vijay Mallya, finished sixth in the team standings with German Adrian Sutil and Scotland’s Paul di Resta at the wheel, both of whom are now without a drive in F1.

Next season sees Perez partner highly-rated German Nico Hulkenberg, who is returning for a second stint as a Force India driver.
