Nico Rosberg 'agrees two-year extension with Mercedes'

Nico Rosberg reportedly agrees a two-year contract extension with Mercedes.

Nico Rosberg has reportedly agreed a two-year contract extension with the Mercedes Formula 1 team.

The 28-year-old, whose original deal was due to expire at the end of the 2014 campaign, will continue alongside drivers' championship leader Lewis Hamilton.

"We have long-term relationships with both our drivers," BBC Sport quotes a Mercedes spokesman as saying.

Rosberg won the opening race of the season in Australia, but the German driver has since played second fiddle to Hamilton, who has won four races in a row.

The pair will take to the track for the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday.
