China - Carlos Sainz has been a positive addition to the Renault team.

Prost told Italy's Autosprint: "We knew taking Sainz would be a risk.  But it is important to take this kind of risk to advance the team.

"It was a positive decision for the team and for Nico (Hulkenberg), because you can see how it has raised his (Hulkenberg's) level even further."
