MONACO (REUTERS) - Nico Rosberg is set to stay alongside championship leader Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes next season, after the dominant Formula One team indicated that both drivers were signed up for some time to come.

"We have long-term relationships with both our drivers," a Mercedes spokesman said, without commenting on a report that the German had signed a new deal keeping him at Mercedes for at least another two years after 2014.

Rosberg, son of 1982 world champion Keke, joined Mercedes from Williams in 2010.

At the end of 2011, the team announced he had signed a "multi-year contract extension to include the 2013 season and beyond".
