F1 Mexican Grand Prix: Rosberg vows to begin fight back in Mexico

Nico Rosberg says he is determined to bounce back from his multiple US Grand Prix disappointments by seeking an immediate win on F1's return to Mexico
Nico Rosberg says the Mexican Grand Prix is the perfect opportunity to begin his fight back after losing out on victory – and the world title – in a drama-filled United States Grand Prix.

The German led for the majority of the Circuit of the Americas race, but a mistake with eight laps remaining allowed Hamilton through to win, which in turn allowed him to seal the championship three before the end of the season.

With Rosberg airing his particular dissatisfaction over the turn one clash with Hamilton that dropped him to fifth initially, the German says he has no choice now but to turn his disappointment into a renewed motivation.

“The Championship fight is over for me this year but I have three races left to make a big push, end this tough season on a high and make up for the disappointment of the past few races. My first chance is in Mexico and I'm sure everyone is really looking forward to the weekend.

F1's first visit to Mexico since 1992, Rosberg is excited to be exploring another new destination and venue, but admits it will likely be a challenge.

“Data will be very important in Mexico, of course, as it's a track none of the current grid have driven before. Some of the more experienced engineers might know it - but the circuit and the cars will have changed so much since the sport last went there that it's basically like starting from zero. That's a big challenge and I'm looking forward to it. I've driven the circuit in the simulator to be as prepared as I can be, so let's see what we can do."

What fight back exactly?? The title has already been decided. He's going from being the most obvious number 2 driver to being the most 'boringly predictable' with his press statements.

Taz: Well apparently it's quite acceptable to understeer into your teammate man so go for the inside this time. There will be no repercussions....oh, hang on.
Niki has put his management skills to good use and found a solution to the first lap issue, they're not going to talk about it any more.... Speaking to Bild newspaper, he said: “The thing with Lewis will not be discussed any more. It is all done and over. The race stewards did not investigate the incident and neither will we.” Funny because I remember the stewards at Spa last year taking no action but Niki took plenty of action, I wonder why there's a difference?
