How F1's comeback merchant can make a lasting impression at Haas

In Formula 1, when you’re out, you’re out – unless you’re Nico Hulkenberg. He might have had more farewell tours than Status Quo, but there’s a compelling reason teams keep his number in the company Rolodex explains LUKE SMITH

It's shaping up to be the year of the comeback. Flip phones are all the rage again, David Tennant is set for a (brief) return as Doctor Who, and TV school drama Waterloo Road is ringing the bell for a new class after an eight-year hiatus. It’s like the clocks have rewound to 2010.

So, what better time for F1’s serial comeback king to make his return to the grid? Nico Hulkenberg is, in the words of Take That (another act which had a successful second coming), back for good, joining Haas for his first full season of racing since being axed by Renault at the end of 2019.
