BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) Nico Rosberg's lead over Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton is down to a single point midway through the Formula One championship, but the German pilot appears as imperturbable as ever.
Rosberg said Thursday that the Hungarian Grand Prix, which Hamilton has won four times, does not feel different to him than any other race, even if Hamilton may have cost Rosberg a win here in 2014 by ignoring team orders to let Rosberg pass.
Rosberg, who has five victories and 168 points to four and 167 for Hamilton said that ''until now I've had the best season of all drivers. I don't look at the big picture. The best approach for me to win is to focus on the weekend that's at hand.''
