Rosberg eyes triumphant finale


Nico Rosberg is ready to put on a show at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this weekend a year on from missing out on the world title at the Yas Marina Circuit.

The German finished back in 14th following issues with his car in the season-ending day-night race last year to ensure team-mate Lewis Hamilton was crowned champion.

Rosberg has again had to settle for second place behind Hamilton in 2015, but won the last two races in Mexico and Brazil.

The 30-year-old is now targeting a third victory in a row - and a first in Abu Dhabi - on Sunday.

"I've had two really great weekends now in Mexico and Brazil, so I'm heading into the final race on a massive high," he said. "Abu Dhabi hasn't always been an easy one for me.

"Last year was probably my biggest disappointment - losing the title at the last moment with a mechanical problem.

"But I showed my speed there with pole position and I have good momentum behind me right now, so I'm aiming to end the season on a big positive this time around.

"It's also the last race for this incredible Silver Arrow - and it deserves a spectacular send-off. Everyone at the factories has done such a fantastic job once again this year.

"A car like this is something every driver dreams of having in their hands, so I'll be pushing hard to make the most of it for one last time as a tribute to all their hard work.

"It will be close as always with Lewis and we saw a big push from Ferrari in Sao Paulo, so it won't be straightforward, But I'm up for a battle and hopefully we can put on a great show for the fans to end the year."
