Nico Hulkenberg: "It's always the world against Sebastian"

Nico Hulkenberg has defended Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel after he has come under heavy fire following his radio antics at the Mexican Grand Prix.

Vettel was left criticising Red Bull driver Verstappen and race director Charlie Whiting after the German felt Verstappen gained an advantage after cutting a corner.

Hulkenberg has jumped to the defence of his fellow countryman by claiming that it is always the world against him

“It’s always the world against Seb,” said Hulkenberg.

“I’m sure Charlie is not that happy, not impressed. Of course, sometimes you go ‘what a w**ker’ or ‘what an idiot’ but usually they cut it out."

“But it does happen in the heat of the race, don’t take this wrong but in the media centre or at home on the couch, everything is on the limit with the finest margins and you try hard."

“So if something doesn’t go right you just feel ‘Aghhh’. Seb is very special in that regard.”
