Nico Hulkenberg has no regrets at the end of his F1 career: It's the way it is

Nico Hulkenberg was hyped to be one of the best drivers within his generation, but for one reason or another it never really worked out for him. The German recorded one pole position in his career but failed to make it onto the podium. One of his best chances of a podium came in his final season of F1 in front of his home fans. The Hulk has no regrets at the conclusion of his time within the sport. 

Hulkenberg's final lap in F1 is probably a good way of summing up his career. He started the lap inside the top ten and chances of a points finish looked promising. But he had a battle with a determined Carlos Sainz and lost out. As a result of this, he slipped up and let his teammate through. In summing up his career, Hulkenberg looks back positively. 

"I’m not the guy who says ‘coulda, woulda, shoulda’ because it has gone. It happened, it’s the way it is. You have to learn from it. At some point, you need to close that chapter, move on and try to do better," Hulkenberg told the official Formula 1 website

"Of course there are situations if I were to relive them, which I would do differently. But overall, I’m happy. I’m not bitter. I would have loved to have a couple of podiums or victories to my name. But I was never fortunate enough to be in a top car. There were certainly moments to get podiums, but unfortunately, there was always a circumstance that prevented it.”
