Nico Hulkenberg debuts on the Inside Line F1 Podcast! In the off-season, we will bring to you a few Formula 1 drivers talking about their favourite radio messages and jokes from the sport.
After Nico Rosberg and David Coulthard’s successful interviews on the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we now have the famous “Hulk”. In this week’s episode, Hulkenberg tells us his funniest radio message, how he found Juan Pablo Montoya funny in Austria in 2001 and his struggles in trying to remember his favourite Formula 1 joke.
Apart from the Hulkenberg special, we talk about Mercedes’ overdrive to find Nico Rosberg’s replacement and cashing-in on the positive PR around it. Strangely enough, “overtaking” was not added as a skill in their much-publicised advert for a Formula 1 driver. Get the hint?
If Fernando Alonso does not fill the vacant cockpit, does it indicate a decline in Bernie Ecclestone’s control over the sport? And in no way is Valtteri Bottas a brave choice, Mr Wolff. Let us hope that all the powers combine bring to us a Hamilton-Alonso pairing in 2017!
