Hulkenberg: Let’s see what surprises the weather has in store

Nico Hulkenberg has never driven a Formula 1 car in Imola before, so the German driver Haas is preparing for the upcoming Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna with particular interest.

Question: In Miami, it was again confirmed that the VF-23 is a quite competitive machine, and the work of technical innovations made a positive impression. How do you evaluate the results of the previous stage?

Nico Hulkenberg: The upgraded bottom worked quite effectively already in Miami, and now all this needs to be optimized on a track with a higher level of grip. In addition, in Imola we will present new novelties, so I am preparing for the upcoming weekend with confidence.

Question: The European part of the season starts in Italy, but you have never competed at the Imola circuit. What do you think about the circuit named after Enzo and Dino Ferrari, and are you excited about the upcoming series of three races in a row?

Nico Hulkenberg: After so many long journeys, I am glad that now we have to travel shorter distances. Ahead of the season is the first series of three races in a row, and Imola, of course, is a historic track and has a special place in the Formula 1 calendar.

I am very happy that I will be able to compete at this track for the first time, because it is always fun to drive on the simulator. Let’s see what surprises the weather has in store for us in the coming days.

Q: The Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna is the 150th race in the history of the team, and for you it will be the sixth in its composition. What is it about Haas that appeals to you the most and what does it mean to you to be a Haas rider?

Nico Hulkenberg: Compared to other championship teams, Haas F1 is younger and more modest in size. We have a slightly different approach to business, and after the first five races I can say with confidence that everyone in the team is really passionate about their work, there is always a family atmosphere here.

It can be seen that this season the work gives people pleasure, so in our 150th Grand Prix we will try to compete for a high result.
