This year's calendar shuffle means the next three events between Tailem Bend and Bathurst will be run on the harder Dunlops, something Hazelwood is keen to capitalise on.
"Our pace on the hard tyre's been exceptional at the two hard-tyre rounds," Hazelwood told Supercars.com.
"In Adelaide we had our best result to date and Phillip Island we had two races we qualified inside the top 10, and were in sixth before getting turned around by James Courtney.
"We haven't been on the hard tyre since, and I feel we've really started to understand the soft tyre well over the last couple of rounds and shown that in results.
"But now to go back on the hard tyre, something we feel confident with, and having certainly progressed our package as a team over the last couple of rounds, I'm sure we should be able to continue our strong form in the next couple of rounds."
Hazelwood qualified 10th and eighth at Phillip Island in April on the harder tyre
Hazelwood's season- and career-best Supercars finish remains his 10th in Adelaide.
