Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team’s championship leader Nico Rosberg has the opportunity to win the championship in Mexico this weekend.

Following his second place in the United States on Sunday where he came home just behind team mate Lewis Hamilton, Rosberg holds a 26 point lead in the championship and can be crowned champion if he wins the race and Lewis Hamilton finishes the race in 10th place or lower.

Hamilton suffered from reliability issues over the United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas at the weekend when the team were forced to break their curfew on Friday night to replace the fuel system in the W07. The triple world champion went on to not only claim pole position but also took victory in the race, his fourth at the Circuit of the Americas.

Rosberg has said that he will keep things simple by just concentrating on the Mexican Grand Prix this weekend.
