Nico Rosberg has admitted that he will still be targeting wins despite them not necessary for his title challenge.

33 points ahead of Lewis Hamilton, the German only needs to finish second in the remaining Grands Prix to become world champion, but he exclaims that he will going for wins no matter what.

“It’s business as usual this weekend,” Rosberg said. “Why lose energy and think about something that’s still miles away and can or cannot happen? Better just stay in the moment and make the best of it.”

“You can choose what you think about, can’t you. I choose to think about Austin and the weekend that I have here … I don’t suppress it, I just go for something else.”

“I’m going for the win here this weekend, I’m not trying to bring home any second places. I will try to push for the win, 100 percent all the way until the chequered flag."

Rosberg was also asked how would he react if he lost the title to his team-mate.

“I haven’t thought of that because I am planning to go for more race wins at the moment and that’s it," he said,

“And definitely such negative thoughts I will fully avoid. There’s no point, that’s not going to make me faster this weekend to think how am I going to feel if I lose. That doesn’t work.”
