Mercedes have confirmed they’ve extended their contract with German driver Nico Rosberg for an unspecified multi-year deal. Rosberg is currently leading the 2014 championship, with teammate Lewis Hamilton close behind. Nico is in his fifth year with the team, and will now continue for several more.
He says: “It’s been a difficult road to get to where we are now, but everybody kept believing and we are now leading the way in F1. There has been big progress during the past year, building up our structure, management and capability for the future. We have an awesome team and I’m confident that we have the people in place at every level.”
Toto Wolff added: “With his performances in 2014, Nico has demonstrated to the outside world what we knew already in the team: that he is one of the very top drivers in Formula One.”
This will put Rosberg on even more of a high going into his home race this weekend, after the driver spent his break getting married and watching his country win the World Cup.
