Sebastian Vettel has agreed to remain with Red Bull until at least the end of the 2015 season, the team confirmed on Tuesday.

The current championship leader had been set to stay until the end of 2014, but agreed to a one-year extension - a step which suggests the German is keeping his options open.

"Infiniti Red Bull Racing is happy to confirm that World Champion Sebastian Vettel has extended his multi-year contract with the team until the end of 2015," read a statement.

"A previous member of the Red Bull Junior squad, Sebastian first drove for Red Bull Racing in 2009. During his Formula One career, the 25-year-old has achieved 29 wins, 51 podiums and 39 pole positions.

"He is the current Formula One World Champion and also a triple World Champion, having retained the title since he first won it in 2010."
