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.
