Nico ‘the hulk’ Hulkenberg has often been hailed as a future champion with links to a top drive at Ferrari that have never come to fruition. He raced in the A1 series and took 9 wins in bi maiden season, the most of any driver as he claimed the title for team Germany. He also won the 2009 GP2 series for ART GP before making his F1 debut in 2010 for Williams. He sat out the 2011 season as he accepted a reserve driver role for Force India but moved into a full time race seat with the team in 2012. The following year he moved to Sauber , then back to Force India in 2014 where he remained until signing on to race for Renault in 2017.
