Nico Hülkenberg (P6, 8 pts): 8.5/10
The Hulk is back! F1's consistent points’ scorer enjoyed only one top-ten finish in the last six races. In Texas, Renault was back on form, especially on Saturday. After a good start and a clean opening lap, the German drove a solid Grand Prix and was best of the rest, which now has him four points clear of Perez in the standings. It is this version of the Hulk, along with Ricciardo, that might be able to push Renault further up the hierarchy in 2019.
