Nico Hulkenberg says he maximised Force India's potential by claiming sixth position at the Austrian Grand Prix.
Hulkenberg qualified in fifth position and held the spot throughout the first stint, until he was ultimately overhauled by the Williams of Valtteri Bottas.
"I’m very satisfied with sixth place today," said Hulkenberg. "Going into the race we always knew it would be difficult to keep the Williams of Bottas behind me, so bringing the car home in sixth was probably the maximum we could achieve.
"I had some good wheel-to-wheel battles with him and we swapped places a few times, but it was hard to match their absolute pace.
"Overall it’s been a great weekend: I found a nice rhythm and I have been very happy with the performance of the car.
"With Checo [Sergio Perez] in the points as well, it’s been an excellent weekend for us and we can be proud of what we’ve achieved."
