Daniel Ricciardo hopes Nico Hulkenberg finds something in Formula 1 next season

Daniel Ricciardo is hoping that his current Renault teammate Nico Hulkenberg finds a Formula 1 seat for the 2020 season. Esteban Ocon will replace the German at Renault, leaving him without a seat. There are a few teams Hulkenberg could move to and Ricciardo hopes that it works out for him. 

"I'm not sure yet what his plan is," Ricciardo said to Motorsport.com. "If he wants to keep racing in F1, I hope for him he finds something. He's been, I want to say, easy to work with. We kind of just did our thing.

"He's experienced, he's been around. It's kind of no-nonsense, 'we're here, we're going to race' and try to give the team as much info as possible.

"It's a relaxed approach with him and up until now it's been pretty effortless."

Hulkenberg is a very fast driver but has never been in a car which has allowed him to show his real talent. He will hope to find a seat for next season and prove that he is one of the fastest drivers in the world.
