Will Hulkenberg come to Aston Martin after Vettel?

Nico Hülkenberg is on his way to Aston Martin as a test driver. This means that the English team is increasingly becoming the German national team

Aston Martin is increasingly becoming the German national team in Formula 1! In the cockpit: Sebastian Vettel (33) from Heppenheim. The four-time champion has found his new sporting home in Silverstone.

In the rear: the Mercedes engine with know-how from Swabia, built by the wholly owned Mercedes subsidiary Mercedes High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth.

At the head of the sports car manufacturer that gives the team the license to drive: the German Tobias Moers (54 / Freiburg), former AMG boss and now the new savior in the British car company, in which Daimler also holds 20 percent.

And team boss Otmar Szafnauer also wants him. At Sky England, the American reveals: “We are close to Nico and are in talks. It could well be that we will bring him as the third man. That would be fabulous for everyone. ”Szafnauer also emphasizes the three missions last year. “Nico was the logical choice because he drove for us for years and because everyone knows that you can rely on Hülkenberg.”

Standby line and simulator operations

The former Renault driver himself says: “I keep in touch with some engineers because I’ve known them for a long time. Some things were done on the car in response to my feedback. You want to know what’s going on. ”

The plan is for Hülkenberg not to be on site at every race, but to have a stand-by line – just in case. So that he doesn’t jump into the deep end, he should first get to know the new car in the simulator and develop it further.
