Hulkenberg opens the door for Verstappen: ''He was right next to me''

Nico Hulkenberg has completed his first Formula 1 race in 2020. The German crossed the line in seventh place and finished behind his teammate. Not ideal, but still the German is satisfied.

"The light was out and he was already sitting next to me,'' said Hulkenberg about the start where Verstappen immediately passed him.

"Definitely had a great race. Never expected this, made the best of it, but on those tyres, it wasn't easy at the end,'' said Hulkenberg in front of the Ziggo Sport camera.

"You never know how it's going with the tests, but if Checo isn't allowed to drive I'm assuming I'm allowed to drive, but we have to see how Checo is doing first,'' said Hulkenberg.
