NICO’S REL­ISH­ING TI­TLE TUS­SLE WITH LEWIS

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

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.
