Nico Hulkenberg looking to impress at Belgian Grand Prix

Nico Hulkenberg has had a difficult few days with the news that he will be replaced by Esteban Ocon at the end of the season. The Renault driver will be hoping to prove to Formula 1 that he still deserves a seat and that he is one of the fastest drivers on the grid at the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend. 

“Spa is one of my favorite tracks to race at in Formula 1," Hulkenberg said. "Everything about the place makes it so special. The scenery in the forest, the unpredictable weather, the awesome corner combinations; it all adds up to create this really cool challenge.

“Spa is known for its elevation changes and fast corners. It’s a real thrill when you nail a lap and head through Eau Rouge, Pouhon and Blanchimont at high-speed. I think Spa suits my style of driving and we’ll be aiming for a solid run this weekend to start this second-half of the season on the right foot.”

Hulkenberg will remain committed to getting results for Renault and will be wanting to open the eyes of other teams to try and open up a racing seat at another team.
