Formula One triple world champion Sebastian Vettel has extended his contract with Red Bull Racing for at least two more years.

Vettel, now 25, won his three successive world championships with Red Bull Racing, and, considering his performance so far this season, the German youngster could soon be celebrating his fourth with the Milton Keynes-based team.

He currently leads the 2013 F1 Drivers' Championship with 132 points, 36 more than the next highest-ranked driver.

A previous member of the Red Bull Junior squad, Vettel first drove for Red Bull Racing in 2009. He started his F1 career as a reserve driver for BMW Sauber (now Sauber) in 2006.

During his short F1 career, he has achieved 29 wins, 51 podiums and 39 pole positions.

It has not been revealed yet whether Vettel's team-mate Mark Webber has extended his contract as well, though Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz is reported to be happy with Webber staying with the team.

Previous reports of Webber possibly joining Porsche for its 2014 Le Mans campaign have been denied by the German automaker.
