Nico Hulkenberg says he hopes he and Force India can maintain its good form after making a "massive step" with its VJM09 across recent races.

Force India introduced an upgraded package in Spain, leading to both Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez scoring points in Monaco and Canada, with the Mexican finishing on the podium in the Principality.

Force India is one of the teams without a simulator, meaning neither Hulkenberg nor Perez have experience of the new Baku City Circuit, but is confident the outfit can continue its form at the European Grand Prix.

"Obviously it’s a new venue: no data, no knowledge, no previous laps here, so everybody starts from scratch pretty much, which could be interesting," he said.

"Obviously the track looks quite exciting, as we've all seen now. I think we’ve made a massive step since Barcelona with the car.

"The upgrade there really made a big change to our game. Since then we’ve really been a points scoring contender on every track, so I feel confident that we can keep it up."

Force India currently occupies fifth position in the Constructors' championship.
