Nico Hulkenberg’s career as a full-time Formula 1 racer was as good as over before Haas signed him for 2023, and we explain why this has worked out so well for the team in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast

Ben Anderson and Val Khorounzhiy join Edd Straw to evaluate how Hulkenberg has started so well and why it shouldn’t come as a surprise even to those who were sceptical about the decision to sign him.

We discuss the reasons why he was on the sidelines in the first place, and his growing record for 184 F1 starts without a podium.

There’s also a look at the value of experience in F1 drivers and a comparison to the situation rookie Nyck de Vries is in at AlphaTauri by way of contrast.
