Mercedes have today announced that they have agreed a ‘multi-year’ contract extension with Nico Rosberg that will see the driver remain at the team for the 2013 season ‘and beyond’.

Rosberg joined the team at the start of 2010, and in that time he has collected three podium finishes. Last season he comprehensively out-raced team-mate Michael Schumacher, although this season things have been closer.

“I am very excited to have extended my contract with the Mercedes GP Petronas team,” said Rosberg. “To win in a Silver Arrow will be one of the highlights of my life so far, and I greatly enjoy helping to lead our team in our quest to become the best in Formula One.

“I have every confidence that the team will provide me with a winning car, and that we will be able to contribute to the fantastic racing heritage of the Silver Arrows. I look forward to great times in the years ahead with the Mercedes-Benz family.”

Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn said that the team have been very pleased with their driver pairing over the last couple of seasons. “We are delighted to have extended our contract with Nico as we know that he is a driver who can win races and championships. Nico has performed exceptionally well for our Silver Arrows team over the past two seasons, achieving results at the very limit of the technical capabilities of our current car. He has an excellent work ethic and, together with Michael, this gives us a driver pairing who consistently push the team to improve and progress.

“As we continue to strengthen our team for the future, we look forward to providing Nico with a car which will enable him to compete right at the front of the field and achieve his deserved first win in Formula One.”

Schumacher’s contract currently expires at the end of next season.
