Hulkenberg still has ‘a job to do’ in Abu Dhabi

Renault enjoys a comfortable margin over Haas in the Constructors’ standings, but Nico Hulkenberg will be on his game at Abu Dhabi to ensure a satisfactory end to the French team’s campaign.

With a 24-point lead over its midfield rival, Renault can afford to be a bit conservative at Yas Marina. But Hulkenberg also knows his team is not immune to an upset fueled by an unexpected event or misfortune.

“Abu Dhabi has been the scene of the season finale for the last couple of years and it’s definitely a good venue to round off the year,” says the German.

“There’s a lot at stake for the team in the Constructors’ Championship.

“Last year it went down to the wire and, while this season we have more of a points cushion, we go there knowing there’s a job to do and anything can happen.

“I’m looking forward to it, though, and I’m aiming for solid points to end a memorable season on a positive note.”

Hulkenberg and the whole Renault outfit left Brazil with a feeling of frustration after a run out of the points at Interlagos. Overall however, it’s been a positive season for team and driver.

“On a whole, 2018 has been a good building year,” adds the Hulk.

“My second season with Renault was always about progression and continuing the journey the team has outlined.

“The start of the season was excellent and we more than deserve to finish fourth in the Constructors’.

“We’ve been the fourth quickest car out there for much of the year, so we just need to finish the job off in Abu Dhabi now.

“As a racing driver, you’re always pushing for better results. While we’ve scored some outstanding finishes, there’s that desire for more which will be the next step for us.”
