(BBC)_ Nico Rosberg says the atmosphere between himself and Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton is “intense” as the title battle comes to a climax.The German can clinch the championship in Mexico this weekend if he wins and Hamilton finishes 10th or lower.On his personal battle with Hamilton, who he has known since they were teenagers, he said: “It’s not something I think about too much.“Of course it’s intense, but at the same time there is an easy-going side.”Rosberg is continuing to insist he is concentrating only on each race as it comes and not thinking about the championship, a mantra he has been using since very early in the season.He says he is “well aware” of the fact that he could win the title on Sunday.But he added: “It has been a great season so far which has put me in this position. It is exciting to be in the championship battle with Lewis towards the end of the season.“We’ve been there before but it is very cool.“But I have said before my way of achieving the best performance is to focus on the things within my control and that here in Mexico is to try to win the race.”Asked what winning the title would mean to him, Rosberg said: “It’s a childhood dream but that’s where it ends because what’s important this weekend is winning the Mexican Grand Prix and then we see what happens.“It just feels right to focus on the things I can influence, keep it simple, be in the moment and it’s been working,so just stick with it.”Rosberg has won nine races to Hamilton’s seven this season and leads the Briton by 26 points with a maximum of 75 available in the three remaining races.Such is his advantage that he can afford to finish second twice and third once and still clinch the title,even if Hamilton wins all three races in Mexico, Brazil and Abu Dhabi.
Mark Hughes says he has been hugely impressed by Adel Taarabt – and believes there is plenty more to come from the Moroccan.Taarabt was out of favour at QPR prior to Hughes’ appointment as manager and the club had been open to offers for him for some time.Taarabt has impressed.But the new boss is quick to point out the 22-year-old’s relative lack of experience and believes he can make him a better player.AdChoices广告Hughes said: “I’m enjoying working with him. He’s a very bright kid, he’s good around the place, and I’ve been really, really impressed with him.“I think there’s more to come. With the right work and the right direction he could be more effective than he has been in the past.“It’s his first season in the Premier League and we want to make sure he improves year on year. I think with my and my staff’s help he’ll be a better player.”Taarabt’s recent display against Wolves was an encouraging sign and belied his reputation for immaturity.With Rangers down to 10 men following the sending-off of Djibril Cisse he produced some of his best moments of the season – giving Hughes food for thought.“I was pleased because he took on responsibility and that’s what you want from players,” Hughes explained.“He understood the situation and that he had to really drive the game for us and that’s what he did.“I like players who are able to understand what’s going on and are able to take responsibility in a game. Some shy away from it but he certainly didn’t.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
