Nico Hulkenberg keen to repeat last years results in Austin

Nico Hulkenberg is looking forward to the United States Grand Prix and enjoys the challenging nature of the circuit. Renault performed well at the race last year with Hulkenberg claiming 6th place.  They will hope to pick up a double points finish this weekend. 

"In terms of the circuit, it’s one of the more challenging and fun ones for a driver," Hulkenberg said in his race preview. "You could say it has similarities to places like Silverstone or Suzuka; ultimate driving tracks where there are fast changes of direction, brave corners and little room for error.

"It’s a very well-designed circuit. It has a great flow to it where you have to get into a rhythm. It flows at high-speed and that’s what I love in a modern Formula 1 car. Balance is important and it’s about finding a compromise between the medium to high-speed corners and also the two long straights.

"We enjoyed a great team result there last year, it was a very memorable weekend, which we’re keen to repeat." 

Renault have had a poor season but will hope that they can finish the season well so that they can build on some positive results for next season.
