Hulkenberg has no doubts about the competitiveness of the Australian and hopes in a Renault from fight to the summit within the next 2 years
First steps in China and an effective adaptation to Renault RS19, for Ricciardo .
It is Urgent to find the reliability in Renault House, targeted by problems with the power unit that have already led to the introduction of the second seasonal unit (thermal engine,Turbo, MGU-H and MGU-K), in China, with Nico Hulkenberg. Nevertheless, another withdrawal after that suffered in Bahrain for the German pilot, stopped this time by the MGU-H.
Together with Ricciardo is located with 6 points in the world Riders, Daniel centered his first positive seasonal result and say there is a progressive improvement of the feeling with the car, after the race in China.
Phase of adaptation to the new team commented also by Hulkenberg, to say how the Australian driver is doing in his new team:
Daniel still has to get used to the team and the car. It always takes more time than you think, especially when you get from a better car to a slightly worse, because things are differentHulkenberg |Renault pilot
Ricciardo has the serenity and calmness from his side, which assures as “the most important thing is that I know what I have to do”. It Will take some time to find the appropriate results to the talent of the Australian, with Renault, which becomes a bet in the long run, waiting for a 2021 and the “reset” of the technical match.
Hulkenberg continues the defense on Ricciardo saying:
It is a different mentality as well as a different battle in mid-deployment than the summit. He is still getting used to it, looking around him but I have no doubt that soon will give me problems.
I am in a good position with Renault and I hope we can improve together the car and, as a team, really get ahead next year or within 2 seasons.Hulkenberg |Renault pilot
I am going through a good time, of course I would like to fight for victories and be ahead, but what you can do is always relative to the possibilities you have and alternatives
