Nicolas Hülkenberg (German pronunciation: [ˈniːko ˈhʏlkənbɛɐ̯k], born 19 August 1987) is a German professional racing driver currently racing for the Renault Sport F1 Team. In 2015, he also contested in two rounds of the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship season for Porsche, winning the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans in his first attempt. He was the 2009 champion of the GP2 Series, and is a previous champion of both the Formula 3 Euro Series and A1 Grand Prix, as part of A1 Team Germany. He is one of three drivers since 2005 to win the GP2 series championship in his debut season, the others being Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. As of September 2017, Hülkenberg holds the record for the most Formula One career starts without a podium finish, a record he broke when he failed to finish in his 129th race (the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix) and in so doing passed Adrian Sutil's previous record of 128.

Hülkenberg raced in Formula One in 2010 with the Williams team. Despite winning the first pole position for Williams in more than five years, he was not retained for 2011 and joined Force India as a test and reserve driver. He was promoted to a race seat with the team for the 2012 season, joining Paul di Resta. In 2013 he drove for the Sauber team, with Mexican driver Esteban Gutiérrez as his teammate. Hülkenberg returned to Force India for the 2014 season. In October 2016, it was confirmed that he would switch to Renault for 2017.

Such sad news. Rest in peace Niki. 🙏❤️

Lovely words Nico

Nico well said ! God bless

This sport is what it is thanks to him. We have lost a legend. I am sure James greeted him with a beer, an insult and a race around the clouds.

Special indeed😔

Quite amazing that he survived at all to begin with and for him then to emerge as a leading light in F1 has been truly remarkable. He was a legend in his own lifetime and his name wiil live on in history.

Such a sad sad day. 😔

R I P Niki🙏🙏🙏

Love you Niki! Thank you from all the Tifosis. We will keep with us always

A legend live in my heart. forever Niki.

Earth has lost a truly incredible man but Heaven has gained one. R.I.P Niki. Formula one fans will all over the world will miss you

Vale Niki. Rest in peace, you deserve it.

Thank you, sorry for your loss, and to nikkis family, and all in motorsport legend, true legends live on,

So sad... RIP Niki... 💔😥😢😭 💙🇮🇱

Take care Nico... He will live on in our memories and we'll marvel at his achievements, professional, sporting and personal, forever. 💕

Yes, he is a legend, & he will be missed! Farewell, Niki!

Love this photo 💕

What a loss!!! cant believe he is gone. R.I.P Niki 'the comeback fighter' lauda. But James Hunt: why you come here so late. Lauda: I'm not in hurry to come here. Both : Now we can race here in heaven and laughed. still unbelievable he is not here in this world anymore

R.I.P Niki Lauda

RIP Niki

Nike é maior que tudo.. amooooooo

Death of the living legend... RIP Niki....


So sad 😪 i hope he is fine where he is now

Great news indeed, have fun here 😎

Home is where the heart is Nico 😁😀

Yeaaah..!! Finally here in the Netherlands. 💪 have some good times in here!!

Will hope that we are able to get that first podium!!

Close to home for you Nico

Not the best one for overtaking..worst than Monaco.. 🤞🏻

You deserve to win it

Great replacement, Barcelona didn't give the best races.

No, no.... nothing great about that.... just look at how the circuit looks like.... even in MotoGP would be hard to overtake!!

See you there Nico😉👍

Wir sehen uns dort!

und Emmerich wird kommen

Nico you will do great in the Netherlands!

Yasss hopefully i will be able to get tickets. A GP in my own country😍

2006 A1 GP, Nico was a master out there! ⚡

I say, that calls for a podium 🤙🏼

Hopefully a podium soon then!

Nico as we say in Holland . Lets dig Some holes

Im happy for you nico, all the best nico.

I'll come support you and Kimi 💪

When will Renault return to success 😂😂

The power of MV33 and His Verstappen!!!! Nicolas Hülkenberg Daniel Ricciardo Renault F1 Team #michaelperformancecoach

I hope that from here you will have a car to win

Hope to be there to see you shine.. #team27 #RSspirit (or hopefully this august in Assen where Renault F1 team will do a demo)

Crazy Vorschlag: Um aus der Fahrer-WM eine Fahrer-WM zu machen, bei der es wirklich um den Fahrer geht, braucht es 20 Rennen. Am Beginn der Saison wird ausgelost, wer wann welches Auto fährt, wobei jeder Fahrer genau ein Mal jedes Auto fährt. Das Beste Auto gewinnt dann immer noch die Konstrukteurs-WM, aber bei den Fahrern wird es wieder spannend.
