Nico Hulkenberg: For the first time I am calm about my future

Nico Hulkenberg: For the first time I am calm about my future

Nico Hulkenberg will drive next year for Sauber, which will become Audi’s factory team in 2026, and the German driver, who has more than two hundred Grand Prix to his name, will be very useful for the new project of the famous German car manufacturer.

However, many were surprised by the fact that he decided to part with Haas, although it was thanks to the American team that his Formula 1 career was resumed and his next contract was announced unusually early. But Niko said that the atmosphere at Haas remains completely normal, the work continues, and at the same time he is happy that there is already certainty with further plans.

“This is actually a pretty comfortable feeling, because for the first time in all the years of my career I can say that I am calm about my future,” RacingNews365 quotes Hulkenberg. – It’s nice to be in such a situation: I know what I’m going to do and I can observe from the outside what other changes are taking place.

Usually I remained in uncertainty for a long time, but now everything is fine in this regard. However, at the moment I am completely focused on this season, on my work at Haas, and nothing strange or abnormal is happening in the team, and next season is still far away.”

At the end of 2019, Hulkenberg’s services were left by Renault F1 (now Alpine), his place was taken by Esteban Ocon, and then it seemed that Nico’s Formula 1 career was over. But in 2020 the Racing Point team needed his services when Sergio Perez contracted Covid-19, and Nico coped quite well, returning to the paddock the following year as Aston Martin’s reserve driver.

But since last season, Hülkenberg has been playing for Haas and has looked quite convincing, often ahead of his teammate Kevin Magnussen, especially in qualifying. It should come as no surprise that Nico’s experience and skills were in demand at Audi.
