Austin - Nico Hulkenberg expects to compete for victories next season when he
joins Renault after five years with Force India, he told reporters on
The German driver told a news conference ahead of this weekend’s
United States Grand Prix that he wanted to change teams and take his
chance to race for a 'works' team.
"I believe it is the right step in my career at this point," he said. "I think and feel I have come a long way with Force India.
"It's my fifth year and we had good success together, but it’s time for a new challenge.
"Since I was in F1, I wanted to race for a manufacturer team and this
is a really good opportunity, the timing was good too. A good decision
from my side."
He added that he believed he had the talent to help the French outfit to improve.
"They have expectations to be at the front and compete for wins and that is what I am looking for," he added.
"When they bought Lotus, it was not the easiest situation, so it will
take time to rebuild, but what I see is a good future and a massive
challenge, but I am very up for that and want to build a success story
