Timo Glock: This is also a difficult situation for Nico Hulkenberg

Nico Hulkenberg returns to the F1 scene after a long time. There are great expectations from him in the Haas team, but it seems that Nico has to go through the process of adjusting, considering that he has not driven for a long time.
“Of course, this is also a difficult situation for Nico,” Glock said forMotorsport-Total.com, “even if he has shown again and again during the time of Corona that he was very fast”. The question is whether Hulkenberg will have big problems and how long the adjustment process will take.
“The question is how good is the package? How well does the car suit his driving style? That’s the subject that you have to wait and see a bit. In Kevin Magnussen he has a tough team-mate to beat. But I think he still has the potential.
Now we have to give him the time to get used to it. I do believe that he can still drive very quickly. But we’ll have to wait and see how the first races go”.
Guenther Steiner on Nico Hulkenberg
Team boss Steiner put special emphasis on the experience that Hulkenberg has.
"When you look at Nico Hulkenberg’s career, he was always in the midfield teams and they always made a step forward because I think he knows exactly what needs to be done to make the team better. That experience we want to drill into, we want to use that experience to make our team better so we are in the midfield, but on top of the midfield is our next main.
Once you’re on top of the midfield then you can try to make the next step to go on to the podium all the time so we need to do step by step but I think having Nico Hulkenberg on board with Kevin, it will help us to achieve this position faster”.
