Nico Hulkenberg looks to impress at the Italian Grand Prix

Nico Hulkenberg is fighting for his place in Formula 1. He is leaving Renault at the end of the season and is currently without a seat for the 2020 season. He will hope to impress this weekend at the Italian Grand Prix

Hulkenberg will look to do his best at Monza and is looking forward to racing at the iconic circuit. 

"Monza carries a lot of history and it’s amongst the most special Grands Prix on the Formula 1 calendar," Hulkenberg said. "The fans create this wild atmosphere there and it’s really cool to experience. I do enjoy racing at circuits with a lot of history and prestige. You get a great feeling at these places. I do enjoy food, and Italy is good for that. I’ll be sure to eat a pizza at some point over the weekend!"

Monza is an unusual circuit due to the high-speed low downforce nature of the track. 

"The track is high-speed with a lot of demand on the engine, high-speed and the need for maintaining momentum around the lap. We have a low downforce setting on the car, the lowest of the season, to allow the top straight-line speed. The car will feel light at first, especially in FP1, and it takes a little bit of getting used to."
