Nico Hulkenberg: Everything worked the way I wantedSeptember 21, 2019
Renault worked with rubber on Friday in Singapore, evaluating granulation of Soft tires over long distances. Nico previously felt comfortable and switched to work with the settings. Daniel Riccardo was plagued by problems with oversteer, but in the second session he changed the settings and made progress.
Nico Hulkenberg (8th): “In Singapore it is always difficult – there is very high humidity and a lot of work behind the wheel. I was comfortable in a car with empty tanks, I showed a good pace, and everything worked the way I wanted. On a long series of circles it was more difficult, and in the second training session there were minor problems. We will analyze this and find out what is happening. Otherwise, Friday went fine, without serious problems. As expected, this weekend the results will be solid, but our car is competitive, so we will fight for points. “
Daniel Riccardo (12th): “We need to achieve more from the car in a short series of circles, but it doesn’t bother me much – I’m sure that we will add. On a long series of circles, everything went better. The car is competitive, but it is important to do everything right. In the evening we will analyze everything. Nico without problems went to the top ten in both sessions, so that the machine allows. I knew that it would be more difficult here than in Monza, but we are in good shape. ”
Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: “Productive Friday. We carried out the planned program without any problems. We have a good pace on Soft tires, so we should be quick in qualifying.
On long series of circles there were more problems, everything will depend on whether it will be possible to keep the tires in the working range. It is necessary to analyze the data and find the right strategy, which depends on which tires we qualify and what positions we take. A tense struggle in qualification awaits us, we expect to go to the finals. ”
