Formula 1: Hülkenberg replaces Vettel again

Sebastian Vettel (34) was ready until the end. But on Friday his Aston Martin squad announced that the German will also miss this weekend’s Saudi Arabian GP.

Reason: The Hesse could not show a negative corona test in time. According to information from ABMS, he also had corona symptoms. In such cases, doctors advise against competitive sports in direct connection with the illness. Bad for Vettel, good for his compatriot: Because Nico Hülkenberg can now get behind the wheel of the green racer again.

Hülkenberg lives up to his reputation as a Formula 1 firefighter for the fifth time.
