Nico Hulkenberg Biography

After a sensational junior career that led to comparisons to Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher, Nico Hulkenberg's F1 stint has perhaps not panned out as would have been expected. One of F1's youngest pole-sitters in history after a superb performance in his rookie season, Hulkenberg has gone to put together a career of contrasts. Though regarded as one of the better competitors on the grid, Hulkenberg has never stepped foot on an F1 podium – with 159 starts under his belt that is an F1 record he may wish he could get rid of.

Junior dominance and F1 move

After a successful karting career, Hulkenberg secured titles at Formula 4 and Formula 3 level before winning the 2009 GP2 championship, putting together a junior career the envy of many of his contemporaries. His success had attracted interest from Williams and Hulkenberg served as test and reserve driver in 2008 and 2009, before he was promoted to the race team the following year.
