The 31-year-old finds himself 33 points clear of Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the Drivers' Championship, having taken the chequered flag at the Japanese Grand Prix.

With four races of the season remaining in the USA, Mexico, Brazil and Abu Dhabi, Rosberg could finish second behind Hamilton in all those meetings and still win the title.

However the German is refusing to think that way and insists he will be going for the win in all those races.

"I really try not to as it's working quite well as it is, so I'm going to keep on going like that," Rosberg told Sky F1.

"There's no point getting into any of that stuff. I just want to keep on trying to win the races, I don't want to start calculating or bringing home second places."
