Schumacher advises Hülkenberg: 'Haas has other ideas'

Nico Hülkenberg should look elsewhere, says Ralf Schumacher. The German advises Hülkenberg to leave Haas. Hülkenberg will turn 37 in the summer and, according to Schumacher, has insufficient prospects with the Haas team. The German analyst previously recommended his compatriot for the seat at Mercedes.

Schumacher has regularly been critical of Haas in recent years, especially after the departure of his nephew, Mick Schumacher. The good start to the season with four points in the first races and therefore a seventh place in the championship, has not changed much. “No, certainly not,” is Schumacher’s clear answer to the question of whether Nico Hülkenberg should re-sign. “Haas is an excellent team, and everything will get better, but the structure is lacking for the future,” Schumacher said to the German branch of Sky Sports F1.

Haas mainly suffers from the policy of team owner Gene Haas, Schumacher believes. “Investments are being considered, but those investments are not being made because Gene Haas has other ideas.” Schumacher thus agrees with the words of former team boss Günther Steiner, who made the same criticism to the team owner. “It’s a nice little team for newcomers like Oliver Bearman.” The young Englishman is seen as a good contender for a spot at Haas, but many analysts expect him to replace Kevin Magnussen.

Hülkenberg is happy with progress

Hülkenberg himself is satisfied after the first races. ‘The step we took at the start of the season is very positive. Last year we were backing down in the races as standard, but now we have had four races in which we can compete well. I am satisfied and hope for more good results,” said the 36-year-old driver. Hülkenberg was associated with Sauber, among other things, given the takeover of Audi. The Stake team is now scoreless in ninth place.
