NEWS STORY
16/07/2014

In a week in which he got married and saw Germany win the World Cup, ahead of his home Grand Prix Nico Rosberg has agreed a new multi-year deal with Mercedes.

Rosberg joined the team when the Silver Arrows returned to the sport in 2010 and is currently in his fifth season with Mercedes.

Since then he has taken six victories, 17 podium finishes and eight pole positions. He currently leads the world championship by four points.

"I am very proud to drive the Formula One Silver Arrow of the modern era," said Rosberg. "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. 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 am confident that we have the right people in place at every level. I'm looking forward to the next years together, when we will keep pushing to win even more races - and, hopefully, championships."

"Nico has been part of the Silver Arrows project since day one and he has a big stake in the development of the team since 2010," added Toto Wolff. "His speed, commitment and focus have all helped to give clear direction and to drive the team forward. 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 new contract brings us important stability and continuity for the future and I am delighted to be able to make the announcement in time for the home race of Mercedes-Benz and Nico in Hockenheim."

Last Friday, Rosberg married his long-time girlfriend Vivian Sibold, whilst on Sunday - weeks after teammate Lewis Hamilton joked about his nationality - the youngster saw Germany win the World Cup beating Argentina 1-0 in extra time. Winning this Sunday's Grand Prix at Hockenheim would surely complete the grand slam.

"The team's failure to specify the number of years should prompt the alert members of the F1 media (if there are any left) to ask Herr Rosberg the obvious question on arrival at the Hockenheimring."
