NICO Hulkenberg is targeting improvement at Sunday’s Russian Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The German, who drives for Enstone-based Renault, ended a run of three races without scoring a point when finishing tenth in Singapore a fortnight ago.

With Carlos Sainz coming eighth, the results helped the team tighten their grip on fourth place in the constructors’ standings.

But Hulkenberg is eyeing further progress at Sochi Autodrom this weekend.

The 31-year-old said: “It’s good to be back in the top ten after a difficult spell in our season.

“It’s important to score with both cars in our fight for fourth in the constructors’ championship, so we have to draw on the positives from that.

“Of course, you always want more, and I can only help but feel there was more out there for us in Singapore.

“We’ll take a point and aim for an improved outing in Russia.”

Sainz added: “It’s a circuit where we have the potential to score some good points.”
