Nico Rosberg insists that he is not feeling any extra pressure this weekend, despite the possibility of him claiming his first world championship.

If Rosberg wins in Brazil on Sunday, he will be the 2016 Formula One World Champion.

"I don't feel any more pressure than normal," the German told EFE news agency. "The difference is that I have much more experience in the fight for the championship."

"We have seen so many times in Formula One that anything can happen," Rosberg said this week. "I will do everything I can to win and then we'll see."

All season Rosberg has concerntrated on each race at a time. In fact, even when the time came for him to renew his contract, he left the negotiations in the hands of Gerhard Berger.

"Nico did not want to burden himself with contract negotiations in this crucial season for him," team chairman Niki Lauda told Auto Motor und Sport.

"Toto (Wolff) and I talked with him about the contract maybe twice, but 50 times with Gerhard (Berger)," he added.
