Hulkenberg chasing first Chinese points

Hulkenberg chasing first Chinese points

Sauber's Nico Hulkenberg heads to China hoping for his first points at the Shanghai International circuit.

Having sat out the Australian GP due to a fuel system issue, Hulkenberg contested his first grand prix as a Sauber driver last time out in Malaysia.

Despite racing with a damaged rear wing end-plate, the 25-year-old brought his car home in eighth place, scoring four World Championship points.

"I have a better feeling now I have driven my first race in the C32, especially because we were able to collect a lot of information," he said. "In Malaysia we scored points and that is also my goal for China."

The German, though, concedes that the Shanghai International circuit is not one of his favourites.

Hulkenberg has raced in two Chinese GPs, 2010 and 2012, and in both he finished down in 15th place.

"The circuit in Shanghai is not particularly one of my favourite tracks, nevertheless it's a demanding one, especially the first few corners and the corners before the back straight.

"Tyres and strategy will be very important during the weekend."
