Nico Hulkenberg is hopeful of a strong result after his best qualifying session

Nico Hulkenberg has his best qualifying session of the season yesterday and hopes to get an equally strong result in the race later on today. The German starts the race 7th today and will hope to catch up with his teammate, Daniel Ricciardo, who starts the race in 4th. 

"I can't be too unhappy about that as my lap wasn't bad," Hulkenberg said after qualifying. "But I maybe left a tenth on the table. It's my best qualifying of the season and we're in a good position for the race. 

"Daniel pulled out a great lap and the team result was excellent. The team has worked really hard, especially on the power unit, which has made a big step from last year. We confirmed that progress today. 

"Our race pace has looked good recently, so hopefully a strong result on the cards in the race." 

Renault have benefitted from the failure of some bigger names performing poorly yesterday but will hope to get a strong result later on today.
