Formula One championship leader Nico Rosberg has signed a new long-term contract with Mercedes.
The 29-year-old, who has enjoyed an impressive campaign this term, has earned six victories, 17 podium finishes and eight pole positions since joining the team in 2010.
He has won three times in 2014 and leads team-mate Lewis Hamilton by four points ahead of this weekend’s German Grand Prix at Hockenheim which will mark the half way point of the championship.
Rosberg has never won in Germany but will be a favourite to do so on Sunday with Mercedes currently dominant in the championship. If he does, he will be the first German to win his home grand prix in a German car since 1939.
