Nico Hülkenberg showed that Renault Sport Formula 1 Team’s pace in Bahrain wasn’t a fluke as he reached the final part of Qualifying once again and will start the Russian Grand Prix eighth.

And the German was pleased with how the day panned out after stating that there was nothing more the car could give, which is a lot more than can be said for other teams.

I think that was the best we could do with the package we have currently, so it’s been a satisfying afternoon from that point of view,” he said.

Unfortunately their double top-ten start last time out only materialised in one finishing in the points.

Renault has struggled with consistency in the past but the team has come on leaps and bounds since this time last season, and are beginning to assert themselves as a midfield threat.

Hülkenberg as well as the remainder of the team will be fighting hard tomorrow to secure another points finish.

The challenge will be in the race; our pace then has been trickier so far this season so tomorrow will be the true teller of where we are in the car with our recent upgrade,” he added.

We’ll push, as always, and hopefully come away with some nice points.”
