According to technical boss Bob Bell, Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz make the development of the Renault F1 vehicle much easier thanks to the harmonization of their feedback.
After Hulkenberg comes from 2017 Force India and Sainz comes from Toro Rosso in the middle of the season, the duo spend their first full season as team mates this year.
Hulkenberg made a good start for the 2018 season. The three races passed Sainz in the qualifying rounds and the championship was 22 points in front of Sainz, who scored 3 points, but Bell said the two pilots played a very important role in the development of RS18.
"Bell," They're both great. They are in great harmony with their ideas about the vehicle and they do not agree with it. "
"The car has some mysterious problems, they understand them and they report to us after each race, and they are in perfect harmony when doing so."
"Many of these problems are more or less well known, and every team can complain about cornering, front slipping and pulling out. Some teams can complain more than others, but they generally suffer the same problems."
"Our pilots are very good, they understand the problems in the car, and it makes our job easier, it's a great pleasure working with them." said.
Speaking about Bell's comments, the German pilot said, "Yes, we have exactly the same expectations from the car."
"It's nice to have two pilots ask for the same thing and give the same feedback, and on that count, the team can come easier than the top of the problems." said.
Asking what it's like to work with Sainz, Hulkenberg says, "Everything is going well, obviously there is no specific process, because we can work well without anything."
"We both do our work, we are professional enough and we respect each other."
"We are both trying to do the best for our team and our career, and we are making good progress." said.
Previously, Rubens Barrichello in Williams, Sergio Perez and Paul di Resta in Force India, Esteban Gutierrez in Sauber and Jolyon Palmer in Renault, Hulkenberg have always been good with teammates.
"Of course there are some differences in personality, but for me all my teammates were easy to get along and everything was in the way."
