Tue, 3 July 2007, 11:36

Nick Heidfeld has finally signed a two-year extension to his contract to race for BMW-Sauber in formula one, according to reports.

The German newspaper Bild-Zeitung said Heidfeld, who is 30, will again line up alongside Poland’s Robert Kubica in 2008, with reserve and test driver Sebastian Vettel probably loaned to Toro Rosso for two years.

Heidfeld’s new deal runs from the conclusion of the current season until the end of December in 2009, Bild claimed.

The newspaper also said he had been “right at the top of the list” for a possible switch to Honda.

BMW team principal Mario Theissen is quoted as saying: “Sebastian’s disadvantage compared to Heidfeld and Kubica is obviously his missing race experience.”
