Nico Rosberg insists there is more to come from him ahead of qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after trailing title rival Lewis Hamilton in both free practice sessions.

The German, who needs a third place result this weekend to assure the title, finished his day around the Yas Marina Circuit a tenth adrift of Hamilton but comfortably ahead of the Red Bull and Ferrari threat behind.

Once again dismissing the notion of just driving for the result he needs, Rosberg is confident he can find the speed he needs to challenge for pole position tomorrow.

"Lewis is a little bit faster but I didn't do my lap properly so I still have a bit in reserve. But it's going to be tough because he's driving well and it's going to be a close battle tomorrow and I'll drive for pole.

Having garnered a reputation for his methodical 'race by race' approach, Rosberg says there is no plans to change his approach even at this critical stage in the year.

"It's a case of really being in the moment and just step-by-step making the most of everything that was in front of me. I need to make the best of the free practice session and treat them as per usual, and it's been working for me. I've had that approach for many races and it feels right, so why not just stick with that?"
