Drafting sports, Aug 2 (EFE) .- The German Nico Hülkenberg, substitute for the Mexican Sergio Pérez in this Great Prize of Great Britain of Formula One, could not start the race this Sunday due to a mechanical problem that left him in the garage .
The Racing Point team tried to solve the problem so that Nico Hülkenberg could start the race from the ‘pit lane’, but the mechanics gave up after a few minutes trying to fix their car.
Hülkenberg, consequently, could not take the start and left empty of this Great Prize of Great Britain.
“Shattered. We are absolutely shattered” was the lament of the team on their social networks.
The German was requested by the Racing Point team as a substitute for Sergio Pérez, who on Thursday tested positive for COVID-19 and remains in isolation, although his health is good.
Racing Point’s options to score at Silverstone go solely through Canadian Lance Stroll, his other starting driver.
