Aston Martin confirms Hulkenberg as a substitute driver

Hülkenberg was a GP driver at Racing Point last year

Aston Martin has confirmed the German Nico Hülkenberg as Formula 1 substitute driver for this season. The racing team can rely “that I will jump in and do an excellent job and I am ready to take on this challenge,” said Hulkenberg on Thursday. The 33-year-old is planned as a substitute and development driver. The regular drivers for the former Racing Point team are the former German world champion Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll from Canada.

Last season, the current ServusTV expert Hülkenberg stepped in twice at Racing Point. In the first Silverstone race, however, after Sergio Perez's Corona case, he was slowed down by a clutch damage before the opening lap of the British Grand Prix. A week later at the beginning of August, Hülkenberg had delivered a remarkable performance in seventh place in the 70th Formula 1 race.
