Rosberg: My race-by-race approach is correct


According to Nico Rosberg, his race-by-race approach that he has adopted has proved fruitful as he is well in the thick of things in the Drivers’ Championship battle.

With a deficit of only two-points behind his team-mate Lewis Hamilton, Rosberg cut down a 19-point lead from the Brit with back-to-back wins after the summer break.

“Standing on top of that Monza podium was an awesome experience: I’ll definitely remember that one for a long time!” said the 31-year-old.

“I approach each weekend aiming to win the race. The points gap has gone up and down but I’ve taken it one race at a time – and that’s the best way for me, as you can see by how the gap is now.”

Looking ahead to the Singapore Grand Prix this weekend, the German reminisced on the troubled past he endured on the track but did mention that he enjoyed his second ever podium finish in his career at the Marina Bay Street Circuit.

“It’s a race that’s been up and down for me,” he added.

“I got my second ever podium there way back in 2008 [with Williams] but haven’t been up there again since, so the target is to change that on Sunday.

“Of course, it won’t be easy. This is a Red Bull track and we weren’t so strong there last year. But I have faith in the team and my belief in myself is as high as ever.”
