Biography

Nico Hulkenberg Biography

Nico-Hulkenberg-2014Since a stellar pole position in 2010, Nico Hulkenberg has been one of the most talked about talents in the sport, and he was, seemingly, destined for the top.

However, now 27, the German's career has stalled slightly as the big teams look for a mixture of proven experience and youthful promise.

Hulkenberg has a solid team in Force India, but it is starting to appear unlikely that he will make the move to one of the sport’s bigger outfits. His loss, is Force India’s gain.

Hulkenberg was one of the most highly-rated young drivers around, after he had success at every level of racing. He won the Formula BMW, Formula Three and GP2 championships, while he also lead Germany to victory in the A1 championship in 2006.

On the back of all his achievements Hulkenberg signed to partner Rubens Barrichello at Williams in 2010. After a poor start to his F1 career, he picked up strong points in Britain, Hungary, Italy and Singapore.

Despite being outscored by the vastly more experienced Barrichello, Hulkenberg showed his real class with a blistering pole position in the wet conditions in Brazil. It was Williams first pole position in over five years. A start saw him eventually fall away to finish 8th.

Despite such a strong finish to the campaign, Williams replaced Hulkenberg with Pastor Maldonado, a former team-mate of his from GP2, where Hulkenberg finished 64 points ahead. The Venezuelan was signed for his lucrative financial backing.

Force India moved quickly to sign the German for the 2011 season, but only as a reserve driver. However, he was back in 2012, as he replaced Adrian Sutil to partner Paul di Resta.

After another mediocre start to the season in which he was upstaged by his team-mate in a poor car, Hulkenberg rediscovered his very best form as the Force India improved.

This was highlighted by his performance in Brazil, where he was on course to win before he crashed into the back of Lewis Hamilton.

He finished the season in 11th place in the championship with a total of 63 points. Di Resta, his highly rated team-mate, was 17 points adrift.

Hulkenberg's form was so good that he was tipped to replace Felipe Massa at Ferrari, but after the Brazilian signed a new deal, he opted for Sauber instead.

Many saw this as a sideways move but with Massa’s future uncertain beyond 2012, it was believed that the move to the Ferrari powered cars might ease any transition in the future.

That failed to happen, as Kimi Raikkonen was chosen instead and the German retuned to Force India.

By this time Hulkenberg was most of the most consistent performers on the grid and he showed that again, by finishing ninth in the standings and 37 points clear of Sergio Perez, his new team-mate.

The Hulk remains at Force India this year, and with improvement expected he will hope to lead their charge in search of regular podium finishes.
