The local boy Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg says that he is pleased with fourth position but this will be a very hard challenge for tomorrow German Grand Prix race.
Nico Hulkenberg took his best qualifying position today when he initially posted fifth fastest in difficult Hockenheim. Webber’s penalty gives him one more position gain in Sunday German GP tomorrow.
Hulkenberg also added that Force India not switch their initial set up today for wet condition. And he is ready for tomorrow race and specially focus defensive long race.
“I’m fairly happy, to be honest, although in Q3 I felt better in the car in the beginning when it was wetter and in the end when it was drier I was struggling a bit more,” said Hulkenberg.
“To bring it back home in that position is the challenge tomorrow, and it’s quite a big task. We will try to defend as best as we can, but the pressure is always there because is ahead and we are in need to score points. We can only do what we can and get the maximum out of this weekend.”
“It was not just luck,” he said. “I think it was a good performance by us. We were on the track in the right moments and I did the laps in the right moments. It’s the second row only because Mark has a penalty, but even fifth place we can be quite happy with that.”
“We didn’t change the car for the wet,” he added.
