Hulkenberg will not be called again this season by Marko

Because a corona test on Alexander Albon did not give an unambiguous result, Red Bull Racing had to start thinking about a possible replacement for the British/Thai driver. Because Sette Camara was on her way to Japan, Nico Hulkenberg was called by Helmut Marko.

Corona substitute

Hulkenberg was of course willing to join Red Bull, but as Albon turned out not to have a corona after all, Hulkenberg's services were no longer needed and he was eventually able to fill in at Racing Point. Hulkenberg doesn't have to expect such a phone call this season, as Red Bull has now appointed a permanent corona replacement. Sébastien Buemi will fill in for the rest of the season if one of the four Red Bull drivers is unable to drive, reports Motorsport.com.

Buemi replaces Camara

Sette Camara, who was previously a reserve rider, will start again with the rest of the Super Formula season and Japan, so Buemi has now been appointed as his replacement. Buemi already drove Formula 1 at Torro Rosso (for the last time in 2011). Earlier this year the Swiss driver won the 24 Hours of Le Mans and finished fourth in the Formula E championship.
