Vettel: I want to beat Rosberg, that’s the primary target

Formula 1 2015 title war over following Lewis Hamilton’s US Grand Prix victory on last race weekend, but compatriots Nico and Sebastian still on battle for runner up position.

Sebastian Vettel now four points ahead of nearest rival Nico Rosberg with three races left and the Ferrari speedy targets to extend his lead at this weekend’s Mexican GP.

“For sure, second place is the target. First, unfortunately, is out of reach and second is better than third, so we’ll try to go for second,” four-time world champion told reporters on Thursday.

“I want to beat Nico, that’s the primary target that I have.”

“The track looks very interesting, especially the fact that the altitude is playing a big role”

“Looking at the down force levels of the cars and the drag levels, it should be an interesting experience.” Vettel said.

“I’m looking forward to getting out and feeling the track for the first time.”

“It’s game over for the championship that way but there’s still three races left and we’ll try and do our maximum, do a good job and prepare for next year,” he said.

“I don’t think we’re going to do anything differently than we’ve done so far. We’ve been doing a great job as a team and going in the right direction, so there’s no point to change anything.”
