Political ban won’t affect Nico Hulkenberg

Nico Hulkenberg has become the first Formula 1 driver to prominently react to the FIA’s new ban on political gestures. “It’s a delicate, difficult subject,” German Hulkenberg, who is returning full-time to Formula 1 next year with Haas, told the German broadcaster ntv. “So it won’t affect or impair me too much,” the 35-year-old insisted. “Others will be affected more, but I think that’s a personal thing. Hulkenberg was also asked if he feels awkward about taking over the race seat of his much younger countryman Mick Schumacher – the son of the F1 legend Michael. “We haven’t spoken to each other about it,” he insisted. If there is no performance, it’s over very quickly.”. Hulkenberg has only had a few one-off outings in F1 since losing his full-time race seat after 2019.
