If Sebastian Vettel is absent again, Nico Hulkenberg will move to Saudi Arabia to be on reserve for Aston Martin.
Sebastian Vettel’s involvement in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix this weekend is uncertain because he has yet to test positive for COVID-19.
Nico Hulkenberg, who filled in for his teammate in Bahrain last time out, is flying to Jeddah to be on reserve for the race.
Aston Martin issued a statement saying, “Sebastian Vettel has not yet returned the required negative COVID test to fly to the Saudi Arabia GP.”
“Nico Hülkenberg will be in Jeddah to deputise for Seb if necessary.
“We will delay our final decision until Friday to provide Seb every opportunity to race.”
Hulkenberg is eager tostand in again once more
In the lead-up to last weekend’s season opener, Vettel contracted the disease for the virus, prompting Aston Martin to contact on reserve driver Nico Hulkenberg.
Despite having no prior expertise with the AMR22 and only being called up on Thursday, Hulkenberg was able to adapt swiftly and outperform colleague Lance Stroll.
Regarding Aston Martin’s recent update, Hulkenberg stated that he would be willing to take a stand in again if needed, and that might very well be the case, even if only for Friday’s pair of practise sessions at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.
Vettel would have till Saturday’s test session to go into the cockpit of his car if he can pass the mandatory negative test and make the trip to Saudi Arabia.
