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.

Bye bye Dekra and your no podium policy!

It will seem strange not seeing DEKRA on your cap Nico. 😞

Und jetzt kommt TÜV Nord drauf ? 😃

That’s a shame 😞 I always liked seeing the Dekra sponsorship reminded my of Schumi’s early days

Lieber Nico. 2019 kommt das erste Podium und hoffentlich mehr als eins! :-) Grüße aus Nordhessen

René aus Abudhabi 😜🇨🇭

You forgot A1GP!!!!!

Ciaooooooo Nico Hulkenberg ❤️❤️

Schade. Aber Jürgen und ich bauen trotzdem weiter auf dich. Familie sollte zusammenhalten!

Ik duim zo hard voor een podiumplek dit jaar. Het is je zo gegund en het is zo verdiend. Je bent een topper

Kommt jetzt TÜV Rheinland?

das linke bild ganz unten mit rosberg und hamilton. von welchem jahr war das und auf welcher strecke?

das nächste Jahr wieder im gleichen Hotel 😜

Oh das ist aber schade😞 haste ma lust aufn Spiel vom EC Bad Nauheim zu gehen?

That's a shame. I liked the yellow cap alot. Could not get it anywhere. Could you send me one?

Auf deiner Cap muss HULK drauf stehen mit einer Comic Figur die so aussieht wie du 😎👍

What happened??

Mache deinen ersten F1 Sieg im neuen Saison, Nico! Gruß aus Bulgarien! 🇧🇬

This so sad. After all This time. :(

Nico is going to better things. I heard a while ago that he is moving up in the F1 world! 💪🏼

Sorry to see "Dekra" go...:)

I'm disappointed to know this break with Dekra, but everything has an end, so new cap for 2019?

Hallo Nico, danke für die tollen Momente am Hockenheimring 2018. Viel Erfolg für die neue Saison und viele Grüße.

You didn't drink any champagne, right? I've heard you don't like it. Even to the point where you avoid podium finishes. Is it true?

Ich zahle jedem ein Happy Meal wenn du dieses Jahr ein Podium holst

Frohes neues Jahr. Ich wünsche dir viel Erfolg in der neuen Saison und endlich einen podestplatz

Die "Kuh" hat was zu trinken bekommen und wurde abgehangen :D

Thanks to all of you, the team, the engineers, the men in the shade, and the drivers, thanks to Nico for his good result in the pilot championship, thanks to Renault even if the car was not always perfect, and Thanks to Carlos for this successful championship pity he does not stay at Renault, I wish him the best at McLaren, 2018 is over, long live 2019 with I hope a RS 19 much more elaborate, with podiums and even victories for Hülkenberg and Ricciardo, GOOD HOLIDAY to all

Hi Nico. So pleased you are ok today, and that you have had the best result in the drivers standing so far. I know P1 is in there. 😊 Loved watching you race in the flesh at both Silverstone (hope you liked your mini Nico and Hulk) and at Hockenheim this year. Always supporting you and proud of you 100% . Keep on pushing. ☺️💪🔝

So glad you got out of the car unscathed. I've been a fan since your Williams days. Looking forward to next year. You two are going to be the dream team 👍

Super gedaan Nico!! Volgend jaar opnieuw verbeteren en ga samen met Ricciardo voor plek 3!! 👏👏👏

Gefeliciteerd Nico volgend jaar met een fijne teamgenoot.
