Force India's Nico Hulkenberg expressed his happiness after equalling his best grid slot of 2015 at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Hulkenberg qualified in sixth position but will move up to fifth as a result of Valtteri Bottas, at the venue where he claimed his sole pole in 2010.

"I’m very happy with the qualifying result," he said. "I always enjoy driving here because I love the track, the country and the atmosphere that surrounds this event.

"The car felt great today and I was really happy with each of my laps in all the sessions.

"We made some important changes to the car last night and found a positive direction, which really paid off this morning because I was much happier with the feel of the car.

"With the penalty for Valtteri, it means I will start from fifth place with just the Mercedes and Ferraris ahead of me, so that’s a fantastic effort by the team."

Hulkenberg is confident that he can maintain his position throughout Sunday's race.

"At the very least we want to hold position in the race and bring home the result because there are some quick cars behind us who will try and make things difficult," he said.

"I’m feeling confident for tomorrow and looking forward to a fun race."
