Nico Hulkenberg recalls Brazil high points

Nico Hulkenberg is hoping his good record at Interlagos will help him this weekend in the Brazilian Grand Prix.

The German took his first and to-date, only Formula One podium there in 2010, then after a year on the sidelines, he returned in 2012, leading 40 laps before finishing fifth after a spin.

"I have lots of good memories from Brazil: it’s where I got a pole position in my début year in 2010 [with Williams] and where I had one of my best days in 2012," said Hulkenberg. "That was a very special race, leading for 40 laps in mixed conditions."

"It was exciting from the lights: it was dry, then it started to drizzle and some people stopped for intermediate tyres," he recalls. "But I stayed out, took a risk and made it work. It was a special experience and one of my best performances to date."

This weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix will be Hulkenberg's penultimate race for Force India before he moves to Renault for 2017.
