Nico Hulkenberg not ruing podiums misses

Nico Hulkenberg has said that he is not upset over the missed podium chances that have befallen his career.

In comparison to his former team mate, Sergio Perez has claimed four podiums over the three years they partnered each other.

The German has been close to a podium on many occasions but either an incident or a stroke of misfortune stopped him from spraying the champagne. 

“There is always a reason for it, if you go to each incident or case,” he explained.

“Some could have been avoided, mistakes happen, or there’s misfortune, but it is what it is.

“It’s a shame, because I would have liked to score a podium for myself and for the team.

“It’s not that I think about it and cry like I’m always the unlucky one. It’s just life. Hopefully it returns the other way [as] a favour as well in the next few years.

“I believe in hard work and good decisions, and the rest will come or it doesn’t.”
