Hulkenberg: Serious questions need to be asked of Renault

Nico Hulkenberg reckons that “serious questions” need to be asked of Renault after their very disappointing opening half of the 2019 Formula 1 season.

Ahead of this current season, the French constructor had aspirations of becoming the outright ‘best of the rest’ team behind Mercedes, Ferrari, and Red Bull after finishing fourth last year, and perhaps even progressing to challenge the top three, but it hasn’t happened, even with the acquisition of Daniel Ricciardo.

After both the Australian and Hulkenberg failed to score points in Germany and Hungary, Renault have dropped down to sixth behind McLaren and Toro Rosso.

Hulkenberg says the team need to find out why.

"It’s a tough one. It’s obviously quite below our expectations and the targets," the German admitted.

"I think we need to ask ourselves some serious questions and review a couple of things internally. There have been far more lows than highs, unfortunately, and not really satisfying.”

"Just how we go about things and where we’ve come the last 18 months with the car, what we’ve been doing, and the effect it has, which is not that much of an effect.
