Hülkenberg in an official press release from the team: “I was on my way to the Nürburgring for a different racing project when the call from Otmar came. That was less than 24 hours ago, so it feels a bit surreal to me now, but I like a good challenge, and this is certainly one. It is obviously a difficult situation for Racing Point and Checo. He is a buddy of mine, an old teammate, and I wish him a speedy recovery. I will step in and try to do the best I can for the team! ”
Racing Point has never had such a good vehicle. This also means that Hülkenberg may no longer get a better chance of getting rid of the record for most Formula 1 races on the podium.
