Nico Hulkenberg admits that he misses racing, but at the same time is “not desperate” about finding a seat on the F1 grid.

Hulkenberg came back to the paddock for the first two races of the 2022 season to replace Sebastian Vettel, who tested positive for COVID-19. Races in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia were 4th and 5th respectively for him since he lost a full-time seat after the 2019 season.

Hulkenberg is open to any opportunity, but will not be disappointed if he does not get it.

“Of course, I miss racing. Some days more, some days less. I think that’s natural. I’m keen on racing, but not desperate,” he said.

“If it’s not to be then I was kind of more or less mentally done with it. And obviously, these things now, because of corona, did happen in 2020 and now, so who knows what else might happen this year.

“But I think I see it quite tricky and difficult for the future to get a drive. But if there’s an opportunity, call me.”
