Hulkenberg: Three months of intense training ahead


After one day of testing in a Haas car, Nico Hulkenberg admitted that he will have several months of extremely intense training in order to properly prepare for a return to Formula 1 in 2023.

Already after ten laps around the track in Abu Dhabi, Niko felt the consequences of a long break in the regular appearances in races, since the physical demands in Formula 1 are not only very high, but also very specific.

“It’s not just about the stress on the neck – it’s about the whole body, including the gluteal muscles that have to work very intensively,” admitted Hulkenberg. – It was hard for me, by the end of the day I felt just some kind of wreck, but that was to be expected. To be honest, I still did better than I could have imagined, and that’s good. But now I have three months of very intense training ahead of me.

In fact, everything is fine, because it was a reminder of how much stress you experience behind the wheel of such cars. Add to that the psychological pressure associated with racing, that’s another story. But I have a definite plan, and I know what to do.

There are a lot of basic things to sort out and try to improve by next year so that at the beginning of the season you can immediately focus on working with speed. It’s not just about the results on the circle – we need to determine in which areas we can add, due to which we can go faster, and then work with the engineers and look for suitable solutions.

Of course, next year I have to pilot a new car, so the maps will again be somewhat mixed up, but what we are doing will become clear when we start working on the track.
