Hülkenberg in talks with teams over permanent F1 return
Racing Point stand-in Nico Hülkenberg has revealed he is "definitely in talks" with a number of Formula 1 teams regarding a potential return to the sport in the future.
The German, who was left without a drive for this season after Renault replaced him with Esteban Ocon, made a surprise return to F1 last week after Sergio Perez tested positive for Covid-19 and was subsequently forced into quarantine.
Although Hülkenberg did not end up driving in the British Grand Prix itself due to mechanical issues on his RP20 before the start, the 32-year-old still impressed the F1 paddock with his adaptability throughout the weekend.
Ahead of the second leg of the double-header at Silverstone this weekend, Hülkenberg has revealed to talking with other teams about a 2021 drive.
“I’ve been in contact with quite a few people from the Formula 1 industry and team principals," the German said.
