NICO’S RELISHING TITLE TUSSLE WITH LEWIS
Nico Rosberg has vowed to treat each of the remaining eight races like a “cup final” as he bids to stop Lewis Hamilton from winning a likely fourth F1 world championship. Hamilton will arrive at this week’s Italian Grand Prix still in charge of the title race following his superb comeback drive from the last row of the grid to third in Belgium on Sunday. And while Rosberg sauntered unchallenged to victory - his sixth of the season - the German remains on the backfoot in the championship. “I’m really enjoying the battle out there right now,” said Rosberg. “We’ve got several cars in the mix now which is exciting for us and also the fans. “For me, I’m taking every race like a cup final. It’s great to know you have the team and the car to just go out there and lay it on the line.” The 31-year-old has won the Italian Grand Prix in each of the past two seasons, and last year won from pole and posted the fastest lap.
