Haas revealed that Nico Hulkenberg will replace Mick Schumacher on the team in the 2023 Formula 1 season.

The fate of the vacant 2023 Haas seat has been uncertain, and several drivers emerged as potential candidates for it.

In the end, Haas decided to sign Hulkenberg for the next season. It will be the German’s first full-time season in the championship since 2019.

“I’m very happy to move into a full-time race seat with Haas F1 Team in 2023. I feel like I never really left Formula 1,” Hulkenberg commented on the announcement.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to do what I love the most again and want to thank Gene Haas and Guenther Steiner for their trust. We have work ahead of us to be able to compete with all the other teams in the midfield, and I cannot wait to join that battle again.”

“I’m naturally very pleased to be welcoming Nico Hulkenberg back to a full-time racing role in Formula 1,” Steiner added.

“The experience and knowledge base Nico brings to the team is clear to see – with nearly 200 career starts in Formula 1 – and a reputation as being a great qualifier and a solid, reliable racer. These are attributes, which when you pair them together with Kevin Magnussen’s experience, give us a very credible and well-seasoned driver line-up which we believe will help push the team onward up the grid.

“That’s obviously the goal and it was that ambition that has prompted Nico’s return to Formula 1 – he shares our vision and can be a key player together with the rest of the team in building on the foundations we’ve laid this year with our return to the points battle.”
