'TITLE IS MINE': Mercedes' Nico Rosberg says he is a 'hunter' and will 'attack full-force' for the F1 Driver's title during the last three races of the season. Image: AFP / Dimitar Dilkoff
LONDON, England - Nico Rosberg has admitted that he will think more about his own interests since Mercedes wrapped up the Constructors' championship in Russia.
The German fell 17 points behind in the intra-team chase for the Drivers' title when Lewis Hamilton won the last four grands prix on the trot.
'I AM A HUNTER'
Some believe Rosberg is tightening up just as Hamilton is hitting his stride but the German announced he would "attack with full force" from the upcoming 2014 US GP in Austin, Texas.
Rosberg, quoted by Germany's Sport Bild, said of the final three races in Texas, Brazil and Abu Dhabi: "The remaining tracks are among my favourites. I've never felt pushed into a corner. I am a hunter, I am hunting for the title and I have no reason to give up.
"There will be a tough fight over three challenging races and I have no doubt that, after thinking about the team, now it is going to be more about our own interests."
Alain Prost, an F1 legend, agreed that although Hamilton was ahead in the standings and on form, Rosberg could not be counted out.
Prost told Spain's AS newspaper: "It's more in favour of Hamilton but he can always make a mistake at the wrong time. I would say it is 55-45."Stay with Wheels24 for the 2014 F1 season – fresh reports every day.
