World Championship leader Nico Rosberg has signed a new “long term deal” with Mercedes F1, it was announced this morning.

The major German daily Bild claims that Rosberg’s new deal, announced hot on the heels of his marriage to long-time girlfriend Vivian, is for three more years, and worth EUR 55 million in total.

He joined Silver Arrows in 2010, when the Mercedes come-back to the Formula 1.

Nico has taken six victories, 17 podium finishes and eight pole positions and he now leads team-mate Hamilton by just four points in the Drivers Championship

“I am very proud to drive the Formula One Silver Arrow of the modern era. 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,” said Rosberg.

“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.”

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff: “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”.

“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. 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.”
