After spending a year with Sauber, Nico Hulkenberg has signed a new deal with the Force India, with the German joining the Indian licensed team for the 2014 season.

The 26-year-old ha switched teams for a fresh assault on the grid after finishing 10th in the standings this year, securing 51 points from 19 races.

According to The Guardian the F1 driver said he was delighted with the move back to his old team.

"I am happy to come back to Sahara Force India. The team is aiming high for next year, and with the experience I have gained over the years will hopefully help us achieve those goals."

With Hulkenberg joining the Silverstone outfit Force India still have two original drivers yet to be offered new contracts, including Paul Di Resta.

As in the previous season Hulkenberg finished tenth in the standings, above both Di Resta (12th) and Adrian Sutil (13th), however the Scottish driver finished on 19 more points than his fellow team-mate.

Meanwhile, in the Constructors' Championship, Force India finished above Sauber with a difference of 20 points between the two teams.

When asked the Force India team, managing director Dr. Vijay Millya preferred to focus on how pleased he is to have secured Nico's services.

He said: "I am delighted to see Nico back at Force India. When he drove for us in 2012, it was certain he was an exceptional talent, and he continued that this season with some strong performances."

While at Force India, Hulkenberg spent his first year with the team as a test driver, before becoming one of the main drivers, finishing 11th at the end of the 2012 season.

Dr. Myalla concluded to say he is looking forward to this season, as it is looking promising.

"Having Hulkenberg in our team is a real statement of intent. We have high hopes for the 2014 season and we will enjoy what will be our most competitive season yet."
