WATCH: Hulkenberg, Sainz and Ricciardo star in the best team radio from the Eifel GP
“Oh jeepers.” That was Nico Hulkenberg’s quaint reaction after his incredible stand-in performance for Racing Point at the Eifel Grand Prix that saw him climb from P20 on the grid to P8 by the chequered flag. Considering he’d expected to spend his Sunday afternoon at the Nurburgring acting as a pundit for German television, you’d have forgiven him for uttering something a little stronger…
Hulkenberg was voted Driver of the Day, while his reaction makes it into our round-up of the best team radio from the Eifel Grand Prix, along with Max Verstappen and Christian Horner suggesting possible tattoos for Renault team boss Cyril Abiteboul – after Daniel Ricciardo took Renault’s first podium since their 2016 F1 return – Ricciardo’s own elated reaction to finishing P3, and of course Lewis Hamilton on the win that saw him draw level with Michael Schumacher on 91 victories.
