Force India's F1 driver Hulkenberg talks about his first WEC outing

Porsche’s new LMP recruit Nico Hülkenberg seems to be settling in well in WEC. He believes that he is well prepared to make his WEC debut in the #19 Porsche 919 Hybrid this Saturday.

The German spoke after the first 90-minute Free Practice where he completed 13 laps aboard the LMP1 car he will share with Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber here at Spa.

“The conditions were obviously very difficult this morning ( Thursday) but still it went well,” said Hülkenberg.” The way you can push for a long-time in these cars and with all these technologies in them it is very impressive.”

The current Force India F1 driver also spoke about his first impressions of the WEC, stating: “My first impressions of the WEC are all good and it is fun to drive these cars. They have a lot of traction with the four-wheel drive and you can really nail it and push hard. Great fun.”
