Sahara Force India's Nico Hulkenberg shares his expectations from the new track in Austin ahead of the 2012 US Grand Prix

Nico Hulkenberg,
Sahara Force India

 

 

 

After a disappointing weekend in Abu Dhabi, how easy is it to bounce back and get focussed on the next race?

To be honest I’m over it already. There’s no point looking back and when you have a bad race it just makes you more determined to get back in the car as quickly as possible.

 

How excited are you to be racing in the USA?

I’ve not spent a lot of time in America so I’m looking forward to being there and seeing some of the country. I’ve visited New York before, but that’s as much as I’ve done. I love the people and the culture so I’m sure it will be a fun week. We arrive on Tuesday so that gives us a couple of days to explore Austin before we go to the track.


From what you've seen so far, what can we expect of the new track?

I’ve driven the lap on a simulator so I’ve got the layout in my head. It’s pretty much an average medium-speed track with a lot of elevation changes. Turns three to six are high-speed with lots of change of direction – a bit like Maggotts and Becketts at Silverstone. There are some big stops and some low-speed sections towards the end of the lap too. So pretty much a bit of everything.
