'More to come' from Hulkenberg

'More to come' from Hulkenberg

Having failed to fulfill his potential in Austria, Nico Hulkenberg is hoping for better at this weekend's British Grand Prix.

At the last race at the Red Bull Ring, Hulkenberg was unable to take the fight to those ahead.

Starting the race 10th on the grid, he made up just one position whereas his team-mate Sergio Perez began the race from 16th place and finished sixth.

Hulkenberg's P9 did at least ensure that his points-scoring run continued with the German having finished inside the top ten in every race to date.

"We probably did not show our true potential," he said. "We were struggling with the car balance and I think that had an impact on the tyres.

"It's still good to come away with points, but I think there is more to come when I get on top of the issues we had in Austria."

He is now hoping for more at the British GP, a race that takes place in front of Force India's home fans with the team's factory is located next door to the Northamptonshire track.

He added: "It's definitely one of my favourite races. We had a full house at the last race in Austria and I expect the same at Silverstone. The fans are great and it's a race with so much history.

"Because it's the home of the team, I can spend a lot of time at the factory seeing the faces that I don't get to see that often. There's always a good feeling about the whole week."
