Hülkenberg surprised: & # 34; I wondered why so quickly & # 34;

Hulkenberg surprised
Subscriptions & booklets

I n the last two races, Force India was already promoted to Q2 a success. Nico Hülkenberg and Sergio Perez dared not think of advancing to the top ten final. And then both Force India pilots would have made it into Q3 in Bahrain. Sergio Perez missed the top ten in eleventh place by 0.063 seconds. Nico Hülkenberg came through and then put his much-criticized car in 8th place on the grid. 'I had expected a maximum of 12th place.'

In a first reaction, the long Rhinelander said: 'I don't know why.' With a bit of distance, there were some explanations. First the route characteristics. 'The corners are short, the straights long. This includes traction and good braking behavior. We have an advantage with the Mercedes engine.'

And then the engineers succeeded in the night from Friday to Saturday the crucial setup intervention. 'Sergio had already tried it on Friday and was happy with it.'

Force India intermediate high as a snapshot

The change helped to bring the tires better into their working window. 'It's a snapshot. It won't help us everywhere, but at least on routes that are similar to Bahrain. For example Montreal.' Already in Barcelona, ​​Force India will catch up with the old ailment. There is simply no downforce. 'And nothing can replace it.'

Now that Hülkenberg is starting from a promising position, experiments with the strategy as in China are forbidden. Force India will try to swim with the mainstream. The tenth in the World Cup is also counting on World Cup points on Sunday: 'Not in 5th or 6th place, but if you start from the top ten, I would be surprised if we don't get there. It won't be easy to get that position hold, but our long runs on Friday weren't that bad. We're here in front of the Toro Rosso. '
