    Maybe they could do a test run of the 2021 line ups. Vettel in for Perez, Sainz in for Vettel, Ricciardo in for Sainz and Alonso in for Ricciardo.

    If that's true, then he should get banned for a while. Very reckless behaviour.

    ESPN Mexico have the story on it:

    Rumours floating about that Hulkenberg could be in line to replace Perez:

    If true, it's probably the best opportunity he'll ever have to get that elusive podium spot! :pac:

    It would be some story if he came back and got a podium.

    I reckon with a high level of certainty we will see other F1 personnel testing positive in the next few days. One person having it means others will get it.
    Hopefully nothing major for anyone and light symptoms at most.

    Guittierz is on his way.
    Bottas, Leclerc to think twice if jetting home between the races.

    Guittierz doesn't have a super license apparently. Could very well be the Hulk yet

    Gutierrez surely did renew his super licence the whole point of his signing was to Reserve for both factory Merc teams (if Vandoorne had commitments with the FE team).


    Both Medland and Fabrega hinting at Hulk/"other" option aside from Gutierrez.


    Could be Esteban this Sunday then the Hulk arrangement in place for next Sundays GP.

    It would make the whole season worthwhile if Hulkenberg came back and got a podium. I know he’s been in cars where teammates have scored podiums through luck and inheriting from retirements, but this would be the first time he’s ever had a car that had a chance of genuinely actually fighting for a podium position.

    He would cruise to a podium only to stall the car on the last lap looking for a German flag.

    Vandoorne is already in Berlin. Stoff and multiple journalists have ruled him out of taking the seat. Highly unlikely Mercedes will be ok with pulling him from his Mercedes Formula E duties to fill in for Racing Point.

    Seemingly he went home to Mexico after the Hungarian GP and there are photos on Instagram of him meeting some fans in a restaurant. He was then in Italy last weekend with his family. His wife had pictures up on Instagram but has since deleted them. So much for bubbles.

    Good god, if that is true, that is beyond negligent on his part, and is tone deaf to the fine line everyone is walking. This puts people at risk for gods sake!

    Knowing his luck the car engine would probably break down but it would be good to see him out there in a good car so I for one would be happy to see him get the chance.

    Overnight the Hulk being in for at least both races idea has been picked up by the majority.

    Delighted for him!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,166 ✭✭✭ Harika


    The more I think about it, could be anyone with a super license close to Silverstone. Paul di Resta anyone?


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,426 ✭✭✭✭ namloc1980


    The Hulk it is then. He's in Silverstone.

    Hulk running into the paddock now wearing pink. Looks like he had the all clear and will be in the car for FP1. 5 minutes to spare

    This weekend just got interesting with the prospect of Hulk pushing for a podium.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,843 ✭✭✭ Cool_CM


    G'wan the Hulk! Fupin' delighted!

    Here is hoping that Hulk gets at least 3rd and maybe even 2nd in the race.


  • Registered Users, Subscribers Posts: 13,111 ✭✭✭✭ antodeco


    Great news about Hulk. Really hope he put himself in the shop window for next season now.

    General question, could he driver for another team in a few weeks time, if he wanted, in the case of another positive CV19 test?

    Ask Mika Salo.

    Unless he signs officially as a Racing Point reserve until season end should be no issue.

    I don’t see Hulkenberg replicating what Salo did in terms of race results however. The Mercedes are just too dominant unless the mechanical gods intervene.

    Both Alfas with spins, Kimi took a trip into the gravel and Giovanazzi wrecked his tyres and left pieces of his floor all over the track from the vibrations.

    Elsewhere Vettel is out of FP1, problem with the intercooler
