Strong WEC debut for Hulkenberg as he finishes the 6 Hours of Spa in sixth place

(Sahara Force India Formula One Team)

Sahara Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg enjoyed an extremely successful debut in the World Endurance Championship at the 6 Hours of Spa as the German finished the event in sixth place for Porsche.

The German started the race from third on the grid, however unfortunately for the Hulk, after just 15 minutes of the race his co-driver Nick Tandy collided with a back marker as he attempted to lap it. As a result the Porsche 919 Hybrid lost time as it had to be called in for repairs.

Unfortunately for Hulkenberg he was unable to challenge for a podium finish following the collision early on in the race however sixth place on his debut in World Endurance Championship is a great base to start from ahead of next month’s LeMans 24 Hours which is the next round of the championship which the German will also compete in.

Hulkenberg’s focus will now switch to preparing for next weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix where he will be back in action for the Sahara Force India Formula One Team.
