Hulkenberg: No Plan B to F1

Nico Hulkenberg remains in the dark as to whether he will salvage his Formula 1 career in 2020.

Hulkenberg will be replaced by Esteban Ocon at the French squad from next season as Renault look to inject youthful exuberance into the line-up after a 2019 campaign that has seen them fall short of their pre-season targets.

The German was considered by Haas to replace Romain Grosjean, but the Frenchman has been given another year alongside Kevin Magnussen.

With unconfirmed seats at Red Bull and Toro Rosso likely out of his grasp, Alfa Romeo and Williams offer Hulkenberg the only hope of remaining on the F1 grid next year, but he is no closer to discovering where he will end up.

"There's no news, so it's a little bit more of a patience game, so I'll have to and see a little bit longer," he said.

Hulkenberg had been linked with a potential switch to Formula E if F1 options dried up, but the grid has now been set for the sixth season of the all-electric series and Hulkenberg admits he is yet to fully consider his options.

"I guess there is that scenario but to be honest, if it wasn't to continue here, after that, honestly I haven't given [it] that much thought," he said.

"I think, also for me personally, I would take some time to get clarity over what I want, find a new challenge.

"Of course I will be in some racing car again in the future because that's what I love doing, it's my passion so I think only time will tell what happens then."
