Nico Hulkenberg will be replacing Sebastian Vettel at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix as he continues his recovery from COVID-19. Aston Martin said Friday it expects the four-time F1 champion to be well enough to race at the Australian GP on April 10.
Last Sunday, Vettel missed the season-opener in Bahrain after testing positive for the coronavirus. Hulkenburg placed 17th in Bahrain. At 34-years-old Hulkenberg is set to drive the AMR22 in the first practice session at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix later Friday.
Hulkenberg lost his seat in F1 at the end of the 2019 season but he’s been an effective substitute driver for the team. He competed in two races in 2020 as a replacement for other drivers.
