Nico Rosberg says he will keep pushing until the chequered flag falls in Abu Dhabi as he targets his maiden Formula 1 title.

Rosberg led Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton by 29 points after the Belgian Grand Prix but four straight wins for the Brit has enabled him to turn the tables and open up a 17 point lead at the head of the standings.

But Rosberg, victor of four races in 2014, says he will keep pushing.

"We [now] target a big finish to the season in the final three races," he said.

"It's still all to play for in the battle for the Drivers' Championship and I won't be giving up the fight until the flag drops in Abu Dhabi. Hopefully we can keep the entertainment going right to the end for the fans out there enjoying the contest.

"The first step comes in Austin, which is a really cool city and a great race track. I haven't had the best races there so far, but I'm determined to change that this year."

Rosberg added that he was proud to be part of a Mercedes squad which clinched its first Constructors' Championship at the last race in Russia.

"Being back at Brackley and Brixworth with a Constructors' Championship title for Mercedes-Benz - the first one ever, of course - and celebrating with all the people I've watched working flat-out, day and night for nearly five years to achieve this goal - it was just fantastic," he said.

"I'm really proud to be a part of this team along with all the great people within it, so it's great to see them get such a reward for all their efforts."
