Ahead of the 2016 US Grand Prix we look back on the disastrous 2005 race featuring only six F1 cars on the grid. Ferrari's Michael Schumacher won the race.

Texas - Nico Hulkenberg expects to compete for victories next season when he joins Renault after five years with Force India, he told reporters on Thursday (October 20).

The German driver told a news conference ahead of this weekend's United States Grand Prix that he wanted to change teams and take his chance to race for a 'works' team.

"Time for a new challenge"

He said: "I believe it is the right step in my career at this point. I think and feel I have come a long way with Force India.

"It's my fifth year and we had good success together, but it's time for a new challenge. Since I was in F1, I wanted to race for a manufacturer team and this is a really good opportunity, the timing was good too. A good decision from my side."

'Good future'

He added that he believed he had the talent to help the French outfit to improve.

He added: "They have expectations to be at the front and compete for wins and that is what I am looking for." 

"When they bought Lotus, it was not the easiest situation, so it will take time to rebuild, but what I see is a good future and a massive challenge, but I am very up for that and want to build a success story with them."
