Hülkenberg – “Graining on the soft compound important to look out for”

Nico Hülkenberg found his practice on Friday for the Canadian Grand Prix “decent”, and hopes to find more pace going into qualifying.

The German was quick in Free Practice 2, as he got as far up the order on the times as high as ninth, just under a second off Charles Leclerc‘s time that was the fastest.

The Renault F1 Team driver however added that “maybe others had the advantage of the track improving”, which is an aspect for him and the team to exploit going into Saturday.

“I’m reasonably happy with today,” Hülkenberg said. “It’s always fun around here and I really like the track.

“It was a decent Friday, the car feels good, but we’ll have a look at a few things and make some tweaks. Our short run pace was fine, it’s a tight in the midfield but we ran quite early in the session and maybe others had the advantage of the track improving.

“Our long runs were also OK, but graining on the Soft is something to look out for over the weekend.”
