On Tuesday, the Mercedes team actually officially confirmed Stoffel Vandoorne and Nyck de Vries as substitute drivers . But if one of the two regular cockpits should unexpectedly become free in the 2021 Formula 1 season, neither of them will probably get a chance - but Nico Hülkenberg!

"We all know what he can do," says Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff in an interview with 'Sky' about the 33-year-old German. Hülkenberg is "one of the top drivers who somehow didn't get this last chance to drive with a top team", although in his opinion he "could certainly convince" in the best Formula 1 cars.

It was not until mid-February that rumors surfaced that Hülkenberg could become a substitute driver for Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll at Aston Martin in 2021; the successor to the Racing Point team, for which he jumped in at three Grands Prix in 2020.

A contract as a Mercedes replacement driver would not necessarily stand in the way. Because both the Daimler Group and Wolff are shareholders in the sports car manufacturer Aston Martin. It is unlikely that they would deny Aston Martin the desire to put Hülkenberg in the cockpit if necessary.
