Hulkenberg underlines just how tricky racing in Brazil is

The grid heads to Brazil this weekend as the drivers get set for the penultimate race of the season. Nico Hulkenberg believes that the track at Interlagos offers plenty of difficulties for drivers.

The German still has plenty to race for going into the final two races as he is currently 12th in the drivers' standings, just nine points behind ninth-placed teammate Daniel Ricciardo.

"It's a short lap, but it's actually very tricky with lots of challenges, " Hulkenberg told Renault's race preview.

"It flows anti-clockwise, it's busy and quite physical.

"In places it's bumpy, but it's all about confidence. The middle sector is twisty but where you can make up some time.

Renault has also got plenty to race for as they look to secure their fifth place in the constructors' standings, with Racing Point 18 points behind.

Hulkenberg will be keen to improve on last season's performance in Brazil as he failed to finish in 2018 due to overheating.
