Nico Hulkenberg is ready to do everything he can to help new Formula 1 teammate Carlos Sainz Jr. get up to speed with Renault through the final four races of the 2017 season, with the pair set to join forces for the first time in Austin this weekend.

Renault announced over the Japanese Grand Prix weekend that Sainz would be joining early after negotiating Jolyon Palmer's departure four races before the end of the season.

Sainz will link up with Renault from this weekend's United States Grand Prix, and Hulkenberg is eager to get to work with his new teammate at Enstone.

"I’ll be doing everything I can to help him hit the ground running with the team, but he is a very capable driver with a bright future. He has shown what he can do in Formula 1 and we’ll be aiming for a positive start to our partnership in Austin."
