After enjoying a healthy lead in the world championship, Nico Rosberg’s lead has been cut to just one point ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix. But now Mercedes have given him a much needed confidence boost by signing him up at their team for another two years.

Rosberg has been with the German manufacturer since they returned to F1 in 2010 and has taken 19 race victories with the team. Mercedes shared this clip online to reveal the news.

With Lewis Hamilton under contract until 2018 as well, it’s likely we’ll still be seeing plenty of exciting collisions racing for the next couple of years at least.
