Mercedes already has the title of constructors in the pocket, but its two pilots are still waiting to be proclaimed champions. Nico Rosberg is the one who more options you have, and could confirm his title in Mexico, although their options are slim.
The German pilot can afford not to go back to win races in the remainder of the season as long as it is a second in two of the races remaining and third in the other. But if one of them gets off the podium, Lewis Hamilton will have a chance.
on the contrary, Lewis Hamilton could see his buddy and rival up arms as a champion of 2016 if, in Mexico, Nico Rosberg win and Lewis Hamilton does not end beyond the tenth position in the race. In the case of get to the point of tenth place, could end the championship tied on points, but Hamilton could only reach nine victories at the end of the year, and Rosberg already have ten, winning by both in the tiebreak.
in spite of everything, Nico Rosberg does not think of competing with the calculator in mind, as he himself says. “I Came here on Sunday with the good purpose of winning (in Austin), but it didn’t work. This is the way, so I accept it and now move on to the next in Mexico. My goal is to try to win there, as well as in each race. Of course, to be in the battle for the championship at the end of the year is awesome and I’m excited for that, but my approach is simple. There are many things that can happen during a weekend that are out of reach, so it’s better to just prevent all out and focus on the job at hand. This is my best work and I feel stronger”.
