Second chance for Hulkenberg by positive test Perez: 'Very happy with this chance'

Nico Hulkenberg will once again replace Sergio Perez and race for Racing Point this weekend. The Mexican has again tested positive for coronavirus and is therefore not allowed to appear in the paddock.

''I'm excited to get back on the team at Silverstone. Last weekend was really a step into the unknown, after being away from the team for a few years - and driving a car I'd never driven before'', Hulkenberg says in the statement.

A positive test for Perez

''I've learned a lot about the RP20 over the past week and I'm ready to apply my experiences to this weekend. Racing on the same track makes it a bit easier again and the team has helped me a lot to get up to speed. I think we can fight for points this weekend, which is definitely my goal. I also want to wish Checo all the best for his recovery," he said.

This will give Hulkenberg a chance for revenge after his unpleasant first weekend. He didn't make it to Q3 and then was not allowed to start the race due to a problem with his car. Hopefully, he will be able to show how good he is this weekend.
