Nico Hulkenberg

Haas F1 Team
Germany
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Hülkenberg is eager to return to a Formula One car as a full-time driver since his departure from the series in 2019, despite his recent filling-in for Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin at the beginning of 2022. The German brings a lot of on-track experience (181 F1 starts) to Team Haas, in direct contrast to previous Haas driver and 2021 rookie Mick Schumacher, who could not quite muster up enough of a successful season last year to keep his seat with the team. In previous seasons with Renault and Force India, Hülkenberg has consistently been a Top-10 finisher, and Haas Team Principal Guenther Steiner is hopeful that the driver of the No. 27 car can call on some of his previous proficiency behind the wheel to deliver a satisfactory performance for Haas in 2023.

Near Points in Canada
Formula One
June 10, 2024
Hulkenberg finished 11th in the Canadian Grand Prix F1 race at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The opening stint would be in a light rain shower and both Haas teams would bolt on wet tyres as opposed to intermediates like the rest of the field. The gambit would initially work over the opening 6 laps in the rain as both Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen would climb quickly through the field. However, drier conditions would soon set in and Hulkenberg would have to pit to change tyres on lap 12. The track position and time gained would be valuable though and set the veteran driver up to challenge for points down the stretch. In the closing laps Yuki Tsunoda would spin off course and that would give Hulkenberg an impressive 11th-place finish.
