Nico Hulkenberg admitted that he felt “human degradation” at the end of the post-season F1 test in Abu Dhabi.
Haas announced last week that Hulkenberg will join the team for the 2023 season. The German drove the VF-22 car during the post-season test at the Yas Marina Circuit.
Hulkenberg completed 110 laps around the track and set the 19th-quickest lap time of the day.
“It was hard, it was tough. I was feeling some human degradation towards the end of the day too, but that was to be expected,” Hulkenberg commented on his outing.
“Actually, I coped better than I expected to be honest. So that’s good, but still obviously three months of hardcore preparation now.”
