Nico Rosberg is determined to avoid a repeat of United States Grand Prix defeat in tomorrow’s race.
He starts from pole position in Brazil but is wary of the threat from team mate and championship rival Lewis Hamilton, who starts second.
Rosberg was quickest in all three practice sessions and all three stages of qualifying, which he described as a “perfect job – only if it works out tomorrow”.
“Unfortunately – up to now of course it’s been going well and it’s the best place to be in tomorrow – but of course I need to make it happen in the race unlike Austin, for example,” he added.
Rosberg shrugged off the pressure of the championship-deciding final races saying the pressure he feels is “pretty much similar”.
“The adrenaline is there, the tension, the excitement. It’s not been changing that much. I’m just here, I’m going for it, trying to push myself to stay optimistic all the time – naturally I am optimistic also.
“Learn from Austin, I know what I need to do better, so from that point of view good to go for tomorrow.”
