Mercedes is set to deal a knockout blow to speculation it might replace Nico Rosberg with Fernando Alonso in 2015.

However, it was previously believed that Rosberg, 28, was contracted only until the end of this year. But on Friday, the BBC reported that Rosberg’s deal has been extended for at least two years. “We have long term relationships with both our drivers,” a Mercedes spokesman confirmed.
