No Renault approach say Force India

Force India deputy team principal Bob Fernley has revealed that no approach has been made by Renault for Nico Hulkenberg.

The German and his team mate Sergio Perez has been linked with moves to the Anglo-French throughout 2016 as they look to tie up their 2017 driver lineup.

But Fernley isn't threatened by the potential approach by Renault, and insists Force India should be flattered

"I think we should be flattered!" he said. "From what we can see from Renault they are targeting everything at Force India, staff, everything!

"As of this point there have been no approaches whatsoever and we have no indication whatsoever whether anything has been offered to Nico. So it's business as usual, as of today Nico is with us next year."

However, he thinks that if any move would be made, it would be Hulkenberg asking to leave, not Renault poaching the driver.

"I don't think it would be necessarily Renault coming in," Fernley said. "I think it would be Nico coming to us and at this point there have been no approaches so far."
