F1WEEKLY PODCAST # 714

CLARK AND NASIR DO THE MEXICAN HAT DANCE AROUND THE LAST TWO GRAND PRIX, NASIR WITH A FULL REPORT FROM THE US GRAND PRIX AND THE HOST STILL HOLDS OUT HOPE FOR A FERNANDO VICTORY IN 2016. ALSO HERE ARE SOME THOUGHTS FROM FUTURE RENAULT DRIVER NICO HULKENBERG…

Nico: “Definitely not a bad effort today and the best result we could hope for in regular circumstances. I made a great start, but once the pit stops were out of the way, it turned out to be quite a lonely afternoon for me. This allowed me to manage my tyres and my pace. At the end, the battle with Kimi [Raikkonen] was always going to be difficult, because he had a massive tyre advantage over me: I was surprised we could keep him behind for so long. I tried to defend as hard as I could on the inside, but braking on a dirty line with 60-lap-old tyres is quite tricky! He turned in on me and there was no way I could stop the car, so I forced it into a spin to avoid a crash. In the end, it was a good weekend: qualifying was my highlight and we’ve come away with a solid result today. We leave Mexico having strengthened our fourth place in the constructors’ championship, so there is plenty to smile about.
