Nico Rosberg has extended his stay with Mercedes after signing a “multi-year extension” with the team.
Rosberg joined Mercedes when it returned to the sport in 2010 and currently leads team-mate Lewis Hamilton by four points in the drivers’ standings. Rosberg took his first career victory with Mercedes in 2012 and has since added five more to his name, with the promise of future success a key factor behind the new deal for the German.
“I am very proud to drive the Formula One Silver Arrow of the modern era,” Rosberg said. “As a German, the heritage of Mercedes-Benz is very special for me, and I am proud to be able to represent the best car brand around the world. It has been a difficult road to get to where we are now – but everybody kept believing and, thanks to the fantastic support from Mercedes-Benz, we are now leading the way in F1.
