Nico Hülkenberg was over the moon with his qualifying run in Bahrain, as he compared his seventh place result with his pole in Brazil seven years ago.

Bahrain is known for its technicality, but Hülkenberg believes that there nothing left he or his car could give. The team should also be thrilled add it was also the first time Renault Sport Formula 1 Team has managed to get both cars into Q3.

That was one of my best qualifying laps together with my pole in Brazil 2010,” he said. “It’s quite a tricky track to get a perfect lap here, but I think I extracted the maximum possible today.

“The team has done a great job all through the weekend so I’m very proud and happy right now.

He is cautious going into tomorrow, however, as the team’s expectations have been stung before by the unpredictability of the sport. But Bahrain does present itself as a good venue for unexpected points as strategy takes centre stage.

Looking to the race, I’m a bit cautious with predictions as we had a great qualifying last time out, then the circumstances of the race undid our good work,” he added. “We just need to get some good Easter egg points tomorrow.”
