    Sergio Perez says he is relieved to have resolved his Formula One future, after announcing at the Malaysian Grand Prix that he will remain at Force India for 2017. Wholesale MLB Jerseys .After months of discussions and rumours linking Perez with a move to Renault, Williams and even Haas, the Mexican finally confirmed the Force India deal after last weekends race. Perez says he is pleased to be able to focus on the remaining five races of this season and admitted the constant delays had started to become a distraction.[It is] something less to worry [about] for the [rest of] the races of the year, he said. Its always good to know what you are doing in your future, and its good, now I can get on totally with the job. There are five races left, they are really important for the team and hopefully we can keep on doing the job we are doing the whole season.To be honest it was [becoming a distraction], with the uncertainty of whats going to happen. Because I came to a point where I was seriously considering its not going to happen, it took very long, as my deals are a bit more complex than others. But especially because it was so long, it was probably the last three months not knowing where my future will be.Its not the best but at the end of the day I think I coped with it well. I am used to dealing with that, the rumours, uncertainty of the future and I think that helped me, what I lived in my past, to try to stay focused on my job.When asked if he was specifically keen to only sign a one-year deal to ensure he would become a free agent in 2018 -- meaning he would be available to move to another team -- Perez insisted stability was the key to committing his short-term future to Force India.More than that I wanted the stability. Loyalty as well played an important role on this, because this team has been extremely good for me and my career. Going into a new generation of rules, all I wanted was to have some stability and not move around too much and obviously it was a one year option, so I want to see where we are next year and whats available for the future.

SINGAPORE -- For every grand prix this season, the only question before the race has been which of the two Mercedes drivers would win.At this weekends Singapore GP, there is a refreshing prospect of a genuine challenge in the night race to the Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg duopoly.Having won all but one race this season -- the Spanish GP where the two rivals collided on the first lap -- Mercedes will start favorites again this weekend, but not by much.The tight, twisty and bumpy nature of the Marina Bay street circuit largely cancels out Mercedes speed advantage over chief rivals Red Bull and Ferrari, and recent history indicates those F1 rivals should thrive this weekend.On the similar Monaco circuit earlier this year, Red Bull had Mercedes measure and probably would have won if not for its pit-stop farce. Daniel Ricciardo came in for fresh tires before the pit crew was in position, so he had to drive back out and come in again next time around.And last years Singapore race proved a difficult one for Mercedes in qualifying on the third row of the grid and unable to mount any challenge. Ferraris Sebastian Vettel took a comfortable victory.Ricciardo was bullish about Red Bulls prospects this weekend, given the strong parallels with Monaco.We look at it as a good chance to get the victory Ive been after this season, Ricciardo said Thursday. Im not going to put too much pressure on myself or them (the team) for this weekend but deep down, we want to win. We are a group of winners, so if there is pressure on us to get it done this weekend, we will thrive on that.His young teammate Max Verstappen, who took the only non-Mercedes victory this year in Spain, was cautiously optimistic, saaying Fridays practice sessions will shed more light on whether Mercedes is vulnerable. Cheap Chicago White Sox Jerseys. We know we have a very good chance to score some good points here, Verstappen said. Its difficult for me to say now that we will be the No. 1 team this weekend, because we havent had a chance to race here yet.For Ferrari, this race represents the best victory chance of the season. Fail to win here, and the Italian team will be staring at the very real prospect of another winless season to match 2014.Im full of optimism, it should be a good place for us, said Vettel, who has been the most successful driver in Singapore, winning half of the previous eight editions. This track was very good for us last year and we have improved the car since then, so it could be a reasonable track for us again.Mercedes had an off year last year but you cant guarantee that will happen again.Mercedes has closely investigated what went wrong here, and it would be a surprise if it was as far off the pace in 2016 as it was in 2015.Last year we were blown away by the fact that we somehow got it wrong, Hamilton said to the local press. But a lot of work went into understanding that.I definitely think were not going to have as many problems as we had last year. But if we do, weve got the tools to correct it.Hamiltons lead over Rosberg in the drivers championship has been cut to two points after back-to-back victories by the German at the Belgian and Italian races. Rosberg has never won in Singapore, and his best race performance dates back to 2008 when he finished second for Williams.
