Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg is optimistic that he can score a good haul of points after qualifying in sixth position for the Russian Grand Prix.

Hulkenberg finished a season-best sixth in Japan and followed it up at Sochi with a lap strong enough to beat team-mate Sergio Perez.

"I’m very satisfied with sixth place today and our qualifying performance is a great team result," he said.

"Even though we’ve had limited running here in practice, I’ve had a good feeling with the car – there is a nice balance and it’s giving me confidence.

"The result today is probably the maximum we could achieve when you look at the cars ahead of us and it means we’re starting in a great position for tomorrow.

"The race is going to be interesting because there are still some unknowns about how the tyres will behave over long runs and the strategy calls won’t be easy. I’m looking forward to the race and converting this grid position into some good points."
