On a dark day in London, F1 Racing is making the journey along Piccadilly to meet Nico Hulkenberg and discuss team-mates, scorching qualifying pace and what might just be his toughest intra-team challenge yet, in 2018.
Time's tight - Formula 1 schedules wait for no man - and we're itching to get our interview started, but we've made the mistake of handing Hulkenberg a copy of F1 Racing before starting. And he has become somewhat engrossed, flicking intently through page after page of our December 2017 issue devoted to a certain red team.
"Nico, hello... Coo-ee."
