Nico Rosberg is confident he will be able to carry over learnings from the end of 2015 to ensure his good form continues in to the start of next season.

Following an error when leading in Austin which saw Lewis Hamilton secure victory and with it the drivers' championship, Rosberg responded with three consecutive wins for the first time in his F1 career. That run was anchored by six pole positions in a row, and Rosberg says the stability in the rules should help him try to continue his form in 2016.

"I’m glad and I’m happy about the way it is because it is more fun like that," Rosberg said. "I enjoy going out and trying to win the races, but of course it has an impact on next year because the rules stay the same and what you learn this year are things you can carry over.

"It’s never exactly the same because the car is new, but for sure there’s a small part that I will be able to carry over. Definitely I prefer to end the season this way than any other way."

With Sebastian Vettel winning three races in 2015, Rosberg is aware he may have to focus on more than just team-mate Hamilton next season.

"Well I look forward to it as I’m sure it’s going to be another great season next year. I’m sure the team is going to give us an awesome car again. Of course we’re aware of the threat from the red guys and we don’t want them to come too close and we’ll give it everything over the winter. I’ll try to keep it going, the current form, starting next year."
