Hulkenberg explains that Spa is one of my favourite tracks

The racing is set to commence this weekend at Spa as the Belgian Grand Prix kicks off the second half of the season. Let's take a look at how Renault have been looking going into this weekend.

Renault sits 6th in the current constructors' championship just four points behind Torro Rosso, while their drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg lie in 11th and 14th place in the drivers' standings respectively.

The German, Hulkenberg has admitted how much he enjoys going back to Spa ahead of round 13 of the season this weekend.

“Spa is one of my favourite tracks to race at in Formula 1. Everything about the place makes it so special," he told the Renault Formula 1 preview

"The scenery in the forest, the unpredictable weather, the awesome corner combinations; it all adds up to create this cool challenge.

“Spa is known for its elevation changes and fast corners. It’s a real thrill when you nail a lap and head through Eau Rouge, Pouhon and Blanchimont at high-speed. I think Spa suits my style of driving and we’ll be aiming for a solid run this weekend to start this second half of the season on the right foot.”
