It is difficult to guess whether we will see Niko Hulkenberg in Formula 1 next year, but it is clear that the experienced German driver made an excellent impression on everyone when he had to urgently replace Racing Point drivers at Silverstone and the Nurburgring.
In one case it was Sergio Perez, in the other – Lance Stroll, and on the one hand, Niko is glad that he coped well with a difficult task when he had to get behind the wheel without any preparation, on the other, he would like to be contacted not only for such “fire” reasons.
“There are not many riders who can do it – just get behind the wheel and show the result, – said Hulkenberg in an interview with Bild am Sonntag. “But being a firefighter is not what I want. Some teams immediately offered me a permanent job as a reserve rider, but my priority is a place in the first team. “
Hulkenberg also noted that the most attractive option for 2021 could be a contract with Red Bull, but admitted that the chances of this are very slim.
