Nico Hülkenberg revelled in Renault's first Q3 appearance of the 2019 F1 season, and says that the team is looking good for points in the Chinese Grand Prix.
Nico Hülkenberg finished Free Practice 2 in fifth position in Shanghai for Renault after failing to make the top 10 in Free Practice 1.
Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel starts Formula 1's 1000th Grand Prix weekend in Shanghai fastest overall in Free Practice 1 for the Chinese Grand Prix.
Nico Hülkenberg says that Renault has shown that it can lead the midfield battle, having lost a double points finish in Bahrain through reliability.
This weekend's Chinese Grand Prix is the 1000th world championship grand prix in Formula 1 history. Therefore it is a good question to ask which of the previous 999 is the best of all. There is a clear answer.
After the double retirement in Bahrain, Nico Hülkenberg knows the Renault engine department will be doing all they can to avoid a repeat, so there is no need to hammer them for the issues they had last weekend.
Heartbreak and heroism in Bahrain confirmed the arrival of F1’s new generation whilst another disappointing race put a quadruple champion’s reputation further under question.
