Does Hulkenberg still have hope? “Maybe Formula 1 doesn’t need me.

Nico Hulkenberg acted again last weekend as the ideal substitute, but De Duister wants more. Hulkenberg wants to return to Formula 1 but still doesn’t have a seat for next year while the number of places is decreasing. He does not see Red Bull as a serious option.

A spot at Red Bull?

In fact, my personal 2009 SL63 AMG has a 600 plus horsepower naturally aspirated engine. Present day AMG models all use turbocharged engine variants.

The Japanese automaker currently supplies engines to Red Bull Racing and Scuderia AlphaTauri. It bowed out of world’s most-prestigious automobile racing series once before, in the wake of the global financial crisis, but resumed competition in 2015 with the goal to win using its own energy management technologies.
