Sebastian Vettel extends Red Bull contract


Current world champion Sebastian Vettel has signed a contract extension, keeping him at Red Bull until the end of 2015.

Vettel has been with Red Bull since 2009 and signed a three-year deal in March 2011 which would have kept him at the team until the end of 2014, and the latest extension has added one more year.

The German has won the last three consecutive world championships and this season has topped the podium on three occasions.

He also leads the 2013 Drivers Standings by 36 points from Spaniard Fernando Alonso.

The 25-year-old joined Red Bull from Toro Rosso four years ago, with whom he won one race for.

He has extended his race wins to 29 since joining Red Bull, including the latest race in Canada last weekend.

There was speculation last week that Vettel was going to leave the sport in the next five years following comments he made to German website Die Welt.
