LOL! not me, we have a rivalry! I'm hoping Nico is Fog's captain...….     Laughing 


Sorry Fog.... Haha      Angel

No idea how this affects me Paps, I kept both Renault cars, but had Gasly for this race, instead of the Hulk, finished 9th, to be honest, haven't been keeping too close an eye on it, as almost every change I've made was the wrong one, for once I got it right for this race Smile

Nico Hulkenberg thinks he may have to "find another gear" in order to beat Daniel Ricciardo at the Renault Formula 1 team next season.

The German ended the season with more 'Class B' victories than any other midfield runner and was the highest-placed driver behind the Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull contenders in the overall standings with 69 points.

Hulkenberg said he is excited about the prospect of being joined by former Red Bull driver Ricciardo for 2019 as it will give him a chance to prove himself alongside a race winner, but conceded he may need to lift his game.

"Bring it on - we all cook with water, I'm not scared of anyone," said Hulkenberg about facing Ricciardo next year.

It does give the chance to answer some questions about Nico, but to draw conclusions until at least the summer break would be wrong, imo. Even then I'd be more interested in how they compete against each at the start of 2020 should Renault retain Hulk. So DRic is bedded in and a much more neutral start.
I'm English, as such, I crave disappointment. That's why I support McLaren.

Hulkenburg is a good solid driver. I don't personally think he was ever going to be a threat to the top drivers in F1, not just because of his size, but also because of his skill level. He's one of those firm top of midfield drivers, who find themselves in awkward positions. Good enough maybe to be a number 2 at a leading team, but not necessarily consistently so (personally think Bottas is in this category), but good enough to lead a midfield team. It will be interesting to see how Hulkenburg Vs Ricciardo plays out. I really don't think Ricciardo will have it all his own way... however, I do expect the Australian to have the clear edge... if he doesn't then how do we reappraise both of them? With Hesh though, it'll take some time for Ricciardo to adjust to life in Renault, so if by the start of the European season it's neck and neck, we can't draw any conclusions.

I'm a big Hulk fan, but I think I've identified his problem, this is what he needs to cook with to beat Danny
