A real pity. Nico Hülkenberg failed to exit the 2020 Formula 1 British GP due to a mechanical problem that was discovered in his car within minutes of the start of the race Silverstone this Sunday.
Bad luck for the German, who lost his place in F1 in Renault at the end of last year to the detriment of Stephen Ocon Despite deserving a seat for its quality, and this time, with a car capable of achieving a great result, he was left with honey on his lips, unable to compete this Sunday.
All the rush that the team and the pilot himself gave to get to Silverstone after the positive by Covid-19 by Checo Pérez, take the test coronavirus, creating his seat, studying the car and adapting to the RP20 on the track, were ultimately useless.
Now we will have to wait to see if ‘Checo’ Pérez can return next week to Silverstone or should continue to remain isolated after positive for Covid-19. In the event that the Mexican cannot run on the second date in Silverstone, Hülkenberg will have a second chance with Racing Point.
