Hulkenberg glad he's on the same line as Ricciardo

Renault's Nico Hülkenberg is glad he's on the same page as his new teammate Daniel Ricciardo, as the German explained it can be confusing for a team when two drivers want different things.

Ricciardo had his first drive for Renault during pre-season testing in Barcelona, where he didn't set the leaderboards alight by any means, but he did get used to his new equipment. He finished fourth, right behind Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas.

"I think we have the same vision, the same feeling about the car and we're looking for the same solutions, which is good," he told Motorsport.com.

"It can be confusing for a team when one driver steers left and the other driver steers right, but me and Ricciardo are on the same page."

Renault will be looking to build on their best-of-the-rest finish from last season and start to close the gap on the top three teams.
