Nico Hulkenberg, who joined Renault after the end of season 2016, has admitted that becoming a team leader — not the main task for him.
In the upcoming season, the 29-year-old racer will become a companion of Jolyon Palmer. Given that the German 115 starts in the Grand Prix, but the Englishman is only 20, many expected that Hulkenberg will take on the role of team leader. However, according to him, it is not important.
“Honestly, this is not so important’, said Nico in an interview with Racer. Media have exaggerated the role of leadership in the team. What is to be the leader of the team?
No matter the leader or not, you still want to be in front of and around your partner.
It is more important to help the team achieve success, to develop it and to develop. Whoever was my partner, I have to beat him.
Me not very concerned about the subject of leadership — with whom I worked side by side, I think first of all about yourself.”
