Eifel Grand Prix: Nico Hulkenberg replaces unwell Lance Stroll for Racing Point

Nico Hulkenberg is to drive for Racing Point at the Eifel Grand Prix after Lance Stroll withdrew because of illness. Hulkenberg drove for Racing Point at the two Silverstone races in the summer, after Sergio Perez had contracted coronavirus. Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne, the Mercedes reserve driver, is available to Racing Point but they chose Hulkenberg because of his experience in the car. A team statement on Saturday said: “Lance didn’t feel 100% this morning and the team took the decision not to run him for the rest of the event. “Nico, who previously deputised for Sergio Perez at the Silverstone events, is familiar with the car and team already, and fortunately was in nearby Cologne.”.
