New Renault driver Nico Hulkenberg is impressed by the design of his car. The team launched their 2017 car this afternoon in London with a striking new design: “It looks sexy!” said the German. “When I first saw it in the wind tunnel I was impressed.”

Hulkenberg joins Renault after three consecutive years at Force India, in the hope that one day the French manufacturer will have a championship winning car. However for the season ahead, Hulkenberg's focus is on the mid-field.

“I’m very happy to be part of it,” he said. “There’s a lot of work ahead and we’re both looking for a positive long term relationship. For sure 2017 comes after a build-up year in 2016 where there was improvement and crucially growth in many areas for the future.

"The target is to move forward in the midfield over the season ahead and be in shape to take another step forward in 2018. I am inspired with being part of this and adding my share to push us all to better performances."

Hulkenberg has vowed to do all he can to make sure he delivers the car's full potential, saying that all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes boils down to the two drivers.

“At the end of the day, it’s a team effort and everyone is important, but ultimately the two drivers have to deliver on the track. I know the goals the team has for the season and I’m taking everything step by step to make the most of the opportunity for us all to achieve good things. I will do everything I can to ensure success happens.”

    I think that the Williams is much better looking.
    But the clothing or driver suit look horrific on Hulkenberg!
