Nico Rosberg is refusing to change his race-by-race approach to the remaining grands prix in 2016 despite the fact he is in pole position for his first world championship. Matt Bryant Jersey .Three straight wins have moved Rosberg eight points ahead of Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton in the title fight. With six races left and 150 points up for grabs, Rosberg is in a better position than he was in either 2014 or 2015, which saw Hamilton prevail on both occasions.Despite his strong position in the championship and rich vein of form Rosberg has refused to publicly dwell on the possibility of winning the title, insisting instead that he is only focused on the next race in front of him. Given how his form has turned around since the summer break, Rosberg sees no reason to adopt a different approach.Asked how he can avoid thoughts of the championship so close to the end of the season, he replied: Its not that I dont think about it. Im aware of the situation, Im aware of the points and whatever else.Thats fine but I just try and focus on the race weekend I have in front of me because thats been working really well for me to do that and not think about anything else. Thats it, I want to win in Sepang and Im going to go for that.Rosberg moved into the lead of the championship by winning in Singapore, which saw him dominate the weekend and remain calm under a late charge from Daniel Ricciardo. Though Mercedes boss Toto Wolff called it Rosbergs best race, the German is now focused on making it four in a row at the Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend.?I dont need to take anything from the Singapore weekend, it was a great result, great weekend and Im very happy, but now its in the past. Now Im here in Sepang ready to go and of course I believe I have a great chance to win and Im going to go for that. Dontari Poe Jersey . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. Desmond Trufant Jersey . -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday. http:///...c-sean-harlow-jersey . The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. The good news is that we finally have a draft calendar for 2017. The bad news is what the calendar itself looks like -- a chaotic collection of dates that bears no resemblance to realistic flight schedules and which fails to take into account the impact of jetlag and endless travel on the human body.Not only will the F1 circus once again have to put up with the impossible journey between Montreal and Baku -- assuming that the much-loved Canadian Grand Prix even takes place next year -- but for those who traditionally save money by staying out in Asia between the Singapore and Japanese grands prix, we will have to go from European time back home to local time in Sepang before switching back onto European time for the Marina Bay night race and back onto local time again when it comes to racing in Suzuka.The first sight of next years proposed calendar led to jokes about wrist-slashing and finding new jobs in the Sepang press room on Thursday, but the draft calendar is no laughing matter. It is hard enough to stomach for those independent freelancers who already spend in excess of £20,000 each year simply attending the races, but for the hard-working F1 mechanics whose jobs are truly physical, 2017 is a nightmare that people will have to suffer unless they see it as an opportunity to move into a professional sphere that is kinder to both body and family life.Working in Formula One is a privilege, make no mistake. Whatever ones role within the paddock, we are afforded with a unique opportunity to see the world (or, at the very least, the airports and circuits of the world), all while working in a field that inspires passion like no other.But that passion comes at a high cost, both financial and personal. Divorce rates within the sport are high, but higher still is the level of staff turnover -- particularly in teams -- as those who revelled in the adrenaline and adventure of a life on the road in their twenties decide that it might be a nice idea to have a social life, a family life, or even simply a personal life when they hit their thirties.There are rumours that following the Liberty Media takeover of the sport we will soon see calendars of 25 or more races, and while increasing F1s global reach is no bad thing, a 25-round calendar will only work if it is assembled by those who have real and recent experience of attending every round.. Taylor Gabriel Jersey. As things currently stand, 2017 features seven back-to-back races, few of which make logistical sense. Shanghai-Bahrain works well for anyone using a Middle Eastern airline (thatll be most of us...), while Spa-Monza makes for a pleasant road trip, as some of us discovered this year. But Montreal-Baku is an exercise in insanity, with no direct commercial flights between the two venues. This year I booked two separate returns (London-Montreal and London-Baku), and alterations to the airlines schedules post-booking meant that I had a 15 minute window in which to complete a transfer at Heathrow.Similarly insane is the non-flyaway pairing of Austria and Silverstone, which tested the limits of the truckies ability to get from Spielberg to Northamptonshire in time to set up the motorhomes at the latter venue without violating EU regulations on the maximum number of driving hours allowed before road safety becomes a problem. Given the FIAs interest in road safety, it boggles the mind that the Federation would sanction such a pairing for a second consecutive year.Budapest and Hockenheim make for a logical pairing given the proximity of the two venues, and the only complaint there is a social one -- the Hungarian capital is a fun and bustling city with an abundance of choice when it comes to celebrating the start of the summer holiday, while Hockenheim is something of a damp squib when it comes to partying hearty. Or partying at all, come to that.Sepang to Singapore leads to the body clock problems mentioned earlier, even if its only a short hop between the two circuits. Switching between three time zones in two weeks (four if one stays out east to save money rather than heading home before Suzuka) is far harder to live than can be imagined if youve not tried it. At least the Mexico-Brazil back-to-back is an easy (almost) end to the season...Still, the overall calendar consensus? Could do better. Much, much better. Expect record rates of employee attrition over the course of the year, and yet more divorces than weve seen in years past. Even the marital guidance counsellors now on many teams payrolls are going to find it hard to save the relationships that will allow teams to retain their valued staff.
