RTL: Hulkenberg replaces Perez again at Racing Point this weekend

According to information from RTL Deutschland, Nico Hulkenberg will also be in action for Racing Point during the second Grand Prix weekend at Silverstone. The German medium reports that Sergio Perez is still under quarantine after last week's positive coron test.

The Mexican driver who normally takes place next to Lance Stroll will not be able to get out of self-isolation in time, according to the aforementioned German medium. This means that Hulkenberg will be allowed to race the RP20 again.

Second weekend for Hulkenberg

The 32 year old driver did not do badly during the previous Grand Prix on Friday and Saturday, but due to problems with Racing Point's 2020 car he could not show his skills during the race on Sunday. Hulkenberg now gets a new, second chance to prove himself again. A good result might help him get closer to a 2021-seat.

The German has trained a lot the last few days to stay fit. He has also reportedly spent three full days in the Racing Point simulator. The goal was to familiarize himself with the RP20.

Official announcement probably on Thursday

An official announcement from Racing Point has not yet come, but it is expected that Hulkenberg's betting will be announced in the course of Thursday.
