Although he finished on the podium in the Mexican Grand Prix, Nico Rosberg was disappointed with his performance as he saw Lewis Hamilton win and close the gap in the championship to nineteen points with two races to go.

The Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team driver still has the championship in his own hands, and is not going to change his approach to races, and is eager to return to winning ways this weekend at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace, and should he win, he would become World Champion.

Rosberg has a good record around the Interlagos circuit, including victory twelve months ago, and he is excited to get going in front of the passionate Brazilian fans.

“Mexico wasn’t ideal,” said Rosberg. “I was going for the win as always but Lewis was just a little bit faster all weekend. Sometimes you just have to accept that and be satisfied with your work.

“I’m not going to change my approach. I need to keep doing what helps me perform at my best and that’s going for the win every time. There are still two races to go and anything can happen in this sport, so I need to focus my energy on the factors that I have in my control.

“I’ve got good form in São Paulo. It’s one of the real classic tracks, which usually produce some exciting races, so I’m looking forward to getting out there and having a big battle in front of those awesome Brazilian fans.”
