Hülkenberg hails 'very positive' team result
20 April 2014 – Nico Hülkenberg described as "very positive" Force India's double points finish in the Chinese Grand Prix, its third of the 2014 season.
Having made it into the final shootout in qualifying, Hülkenberg progressed to sixth position during Sunday afternoon's race, while team-mate Sergio Pérez climbed from 16th to ninth.
"Finishing in sixth and bringing both cars home in the points again was a very positive result for the team," said Hülkenberg.
"It was actually a pretty straightforward race for me after we got in front of [Felipe] Massa: I had to manage my tyres, my pace and avoid mistakes, and it only got tricky at the end when [Valtteri] Bottas was getting a bit closer."
Although it beat the other Mercedes customer teams, Hülkenberg says Force India cannot get complacent.
"We have beaten all other customer Mercedes cars, which are our main competition at the moment, but we have also seen some other teams up their game so we will need to keep pushing," the German summed up.
Force India sits third in the standings, three points behind Ferrari and a further 97 adrift of Mercedes.
