F1 2020: Nico Hulkenberg reveals ‘crazy’ ride at British GP

Published

on

Nico Hulkenberg has lifted the lid on his “crazy” call-up for the British GP, and believes he can deliver for a fast Racing Point this weekend after a solid first day in the car at Silverstone.

The 32-year-old, who isn’t racing in a full-time series this year after losing his Renault seat at the end of 2019, was dramatically drafted in to replace Sergio Perez after the Mexican’s positive coronavirus test on Friday (AEDT).

On his first day back in Formula 1 and after a night of little sleep, Hulkenberg — Aussie Daniel Ricciardo’s ex-teammate at Renault — was just six tenths of a second slower than teammate Lance Stroll in both sessions, the second of which Stroll was fastest of all.

“The last 24 hours have been a bit special, crazy and wild,” Hulkenberg said after practice.

“At 4.30pm yesterday afternoon I got a call, took a plane here, seat-fitted until 2am, then at 8am this morning (I was) into the simulator for an hour, a bit of prep work. So it was a short night — but all worthwhile.
