Hulkenberg 'pretty optimistic' for Germany

Hulkenberg: So far, so good

Hulkenberg: So far, so good

Nico Hulkenberg believes Force India will again be fighting at the front in Germany after missing out at the previous race in Britain.

Unlike in recent weeks, the Silverstone grand prix saw Force India fall off the pace a bit.

Instead of fighting near the front of the top-ten, Hulkenberg and his team-mate Sergio Perez were battling just to stay inside it.

This week, though, Hulkenberg expects better at his home race, confident that the nature of the Hockenheimring will suit his VJM07.

"I think Hockenheim will be better [than Silverstone]," he told Peter Windsor at The Racers' Edge.

"That track will suit us more, the low speed corners, it's not dominated by high speed, we have the soft tyres again which are a bit more in our favour I think.

"I'm pretty optimistic for Hockenheim."

This season is Hulkenberg's first back at Force India having spent 2013 with the Sauber team.

It's been an impressive start to the Championship for the German racer who has scored 63 points in nine grands prix.

He added: "I'm very comfortable, super happy here with the team.

"Everything has gone really well so far. We are now fifth in the Constructors' Championship.

"Overall we've had a mega first half of the season.

"Nine consecutive times in the points for me personally which is very good.

"Overall a very positive first half of the season."
