Hülkenberg boosted by 'best run'
2 June 2014 – Nico Hülkenberg will be out to extend his best run of results in Formula 1 at the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend.
Hülkenberg has had a great season so far and has scored points in every race to date, taking his third fifth place of 2014 in Monaco last time out. That moved him up to fourth in the Drivers' Championship and has given him a real boost.
"It's my best run of results in F1 and I'm really enjoying the racing. I've said many times that consistency is our strength and we showed that again in Monaco with another fifth place. Monaco was not our strongest track, or our weakest track, but we still brought the car home for a great result," he stated.
Hülkenberg is cautious however about what he will be able to achieve this Sunday at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, although he does think the track will suit his Force India.
"It's difficult to say how we will perform in Montreal. In theory it should be one of the better tracks for us, but things change from race to race," he added.
"It's good that we have the soft and supersoft tyres again though because I think the softer tyres are more suited to our car.
"As an overall event the Canadian Grand Prix is one of my favourites because of the buzz around the city and the unusual track. To get a quick lap you need good top speed, a car that can attack the curbs and you also have to be brave enough to get close to the walls."
