Nico Hulkenberg is aiming to finish the Korean Grand Prix in the points after posting the eighth fastest time in qualifying.

The German narrowly made it through to Q3 and eclipsed the Mercedes drivers in the final shootout.

"It was not an easy qualifying session, but in the end everything went to plan. I did struggle in Q1 and Q2, and I’ve been fighting some understeer in the car all weekend, especially through the first sector", he said.

"The times were very close and I think it will be the same tomorrow, but our long-run performance looks competitive so I think we can definitely race the people around us and come away with points".

As in Japan, Paul di Resta lamented traffic on his final flying lap in Q2.

"The car was capable of Q3 today but once again my lap in Q2 was compromised by traffic. There were some cars backing off in the last three corners and that cost me those crucial tenths I needed to make Q3. So I’m a little bit disappointed because I didn’t get the most from the session", said the Brit, who starts from fourteenth place.
