Formula 1: Vettel has to pass, Hulkenberg is coming

Now it has caught Sebastian Vettel (34). The German canceled the day before the opening practice session for the GP Bahrain with a positive corona test. This was announced by his racing team Aston Martin.

According to information from ABMS, Vettel is doing well given the circumstances. He is in isolation at home in Switzerland, so he wasn’t even allowed on the plane to Bahrain.

Explosive: The second race in Saudi Arabia will take place next week. It is quite possible that Vettel will also miss the GP in Jeddah.

Bad luck for Vettel, luck for Nico Hulkenberg. The new father is still an Aston Martin test driver and can now take the wheel of the green racer in place of his German colleague. This also gives Hülkenberg an impression of the brand new Formula 1 cars.

Nico Hulkenberg will step in for Vettel at the Bahrain GP.

The man from Emmerich had already stepped in twice for the Aston Martin predecessor team Racing Point in 2020, when he replaced both Lance Stroll (Nürburgring/eighth place) and Sergio Perez (Silverstone/technical defect). Since then he has had a reputation as a firefighter in the scene.

It won’t be easy for Hülkenberg again this time. He’s the only driver who didn’t do a single lap in the new cars during testing. So he only has three free practice sessions to get used to the new technique.
