Nico Rosberg says he won't change his plan of attack at the start of the Mexican Grand Prix after claiming his fourth consecutive pole position.

The Mercedes driver has once again wrestled the advantage from his team-mate Lewis Hamilton in qualifying as he found an extra couple of tenths on the reigning F1 champion to claim the 20th pole position of his F1 career with a 1m 19.480s lap.

Rosberg has confirmed he is feeling strong for the race on Sunday and that he isn't changing his approach to the race start despite losing out in two recent first corner battles with Hamilton at Suzuka and Austin.

"I don't really have a precise explanation I've just felt good all weekend," Rosberg said. "I've been quick in all the sessions and found a good balance in qualifying thanks to my engineers and the team, so I was able to push and get a good lap in.

"It is a good start for sure starting on pole. It is going to be a long run down to turn one so it is going to be an exciting battle. I'm sure we have a good race car but it will be interesting tyre-wise, there was some stuff going on Friday which is going to be not so easy to handle in the race but we are well-prepared."

Rosberg says his frustrations about the turn one clash with Hamilton at the Circuit of the Americas are gone and is focused on gaining revenge this weekend.

"The start is no different, it is always going to be a battle. What happened in the past is in the past and now I move forward, it does change anything. There is no difference for me I am attacking as always, it is three more races to go and it is great to be here in Mexico and I really enjoy driving here."
