Confident Hulkenberg enjoying 'best run'

Tuesday 03-June-2014 09:48

Force India's Nico Hulkenberg admitted that he is more confident than every after the German made a superb start to the 2014 Formula One season.

So far this year, Hulkenberg finished in the top five on three occasions and scored points in each race to lie in fifth place on the Drivers' Championship standings.

"It's my best run of results in Formula One and I'm really enjoying the racing," Hulkenberg told crash.net.

"I've said many times that consistency is our strength and we showed that again in Monaco with another fifth place. Monaco was not our strongest track, or our weakest track, but we still brought the car home for a great result."

The 26-year-old is also confident that Force India can continue their run of strong performances at this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.

"It's difficult to say how we will perform in Montreal. In theory it should be one of the better tracks for us, but things change from race to race. It's good that we have the soft and supersoft tyres again because I think the softer tyres are more suited to our car," Hulkenberg continued.

"As an overall event the Canadian Grand Prix is one of my favourites because of the buzz around the city and the unusual track. To get a quick lap you need good top speed, a car that can attack the curbs and you also have to be brave enough to get close to the walls."
