Driver Bio

Nico Hulkenberg was born in Emmerich, Germany in 1987 and began karting at 10 years old in 1997.

In 2002 he won the German Junior Champion and won the German Kart Championship the following year.

He moved into Formula BMW ADAC in 2005, winning the championship following nine victories and eight pole positions.

The following year he moved to A1 GP joining the German team and helped them win the championship in his rookie season by picking up 128 points.

For 2007 Hulkenberg switched to Formula Three, where he won the Masters in Zolder and won the Euroseries the following year after seven race wins.

Hulkenberg joined ART for the third round of the 2008 / 2009 GP2 Asia series in Bahrain where he took pole position and finished sixth overall, despite only taking part in two out of the four rounds of the series.

He continued with ART to take part in the 2009 GP2 series and won the championship. Hulkenberg dominated his home race weekend by taking pole position, winning both races and setting the fastest laps during both races.

After being a test driver for Williams in 2008 and 2009, they gave him a race seat in 2010 alongside experienced driver Rubens Barrichello.

He had a fairly strong rookie year, finishing 14th and picking up 22 points during the sear. At the Brazilian Grand Prix he scored his first pole position, out-qualifying Sebastian Vettel by just over a second, he went on to finish the race eighth.

In 2011 Hulkenberg found himself without a race seat but managed to take part in a few practice sessions as Force India’s Test Driver.

Following the departure of Adrian Sutil, Force India gave Hulkenberg a race seat for the 2012 season. The German out-qualified teammate Paul di Resta a few times throughout the year and finished 17 points ahead of him.

With the return of Sutil to Force India, Hulkenberg moved to Sauber and finished 10th in the standings despite struggling to get to grips with the car.

Hulkenberg will return to Sauber for 2014.

Car number: Hulkenberg will race with the number 27 on his car but hasn’t given a reason why he’s chosen this number.
