The German motorracing driver Nico Rosberg is to remain at Mercedes alongside Lewis Hamilton after signing a contract extension for at least two more years.

The 28-year-old's current deal was due to expire at the end of this F1 campaign.

Rosberg, who won the opening race of 2014, is second in the standings, behind Hamilton, who is in the second season of a three-year deal.

The drivers are in Monte Carlo this weekend for the next round of the championship.
