Nico Hulkenberg insists the arrival of his new teammate Carlos Sainz poses him "no problem". Although the German had a less than smooth weekend in Austin, some believe Hulkenberg was outperformed by Sainz as the Spaniard made his Renault debut a week ago.

When asked how his first weekend alongside Sainz went, Hulkenberg answered in Mexico: "Well enough. He quickly got used to the team and was immediately able to show good speed."

But when asked if he likes the idea of having a more competitive teammate, after spending most of 2017 alongside Jolyon Palmer, Hulkenberg answered: "Well, it's good. No problem. As I said, Carlos almost immediately was able to show good speed and he's not only quick but he works a lot -- which is good for us. The team always wins when both drivers help the team to move forward," he added. (GMM)

  • Hulk is a solid driver. Definitely would be a race winner with a decent car. However, Sainz is a super star. Those 4th and 5th places with Toro Rosso look more impressive every race.
