Force India speedy Nico Hulkenberg made the final points in the hard Spanish Grand Prix. The German finished with points first time since Malaysian GP; he took the final points after moreover challenging with Red Bull’s Mark Webber in second half of the race.
“A lot of hard work went into today’s race so it’s nice to get the reward of one point. Hulkenberg said.
“ It was a very tough race physically and there was never a moment to relax because I had Mark [Webber] filling my mirrors for the second half of the race. It was a great battle, with a lot of pressure, but fortunately I was able to keep him behind, which was not easy with the DRS on the main straight.“
“Considering where I started it’s good to score a point and I don’t think we could have got much more from the race. The team did an excellent job with the pit stops and the strategy, and I’m pleased with what we achieved today.”
Next Force India guy Paul di Resta was unable finish top ten, but still Paul leading 12 points ahead of his team-mate Nico Hulkenberg.
“I’m disappointed not to have been further up in the battle for points because my race was looking promising to begin with. “di Resta said.
“But as things unfolded I lost track position so I think we need to analyse why our performance on the hard tyres did not meet our expectations and exactly why we lost out. “
“My main battle in the second half of the race was with the Toro Rossos, but they were on the soft tyres when I was on the hards and it was impossible to keep them behind me. I think it’s just one of those races that didn’t work out for me for whatever reason so we’ll take it on the chin and look to come back stronger in Monaco.”
