Marko calls performance Hulkenberg 'extraordinary'

Nico Hulkenberg stepped in last minute for Sergio Perez who could not participate in both British GP's due to a corona infection. Racing Point acted quickly, and although it was to no avail in the first week, the Hulk was able to show what he's worth in week two. Helmut Marko was impressed.

Marko heavily impressed by the Hulk

Red Bull Racing team advisor Marko admired Hulkenberg's return to F1. In pink the Dutch-speaking German managed to qualify for Max Verstappen at P3.

At RTL.de Marko called his performance "extraordinary". "First of all he had a long break", the Austrian continued. "And secondly he didn't have any training, while Lance Stroll did all the sessions. He left him impressively behind."

Marko hopes Hulkenberg comes back in F1

"I hope Nico can find a seat somewhere in F1," Marko continues. "It's very difficult at the moment, but the season is still long. With this achievement he has given the ideal business card."

Hulkenberg will be out of action next race in Spain. Sergio Perez has recovered after a negative corona test. It can't be ruled out yet if other drivers might get infected and the Hulk could come back later this season.
