The BWT Racing Point Formula One Team announced on Saturday that Nico Hulkenberg will drove in place of Lance Stroll for the rest of the Eifel Grand Prix at the Nurburgring.

In a statement the team said:

Nico Hülkenberg will drive for the BWT Racing Point F1 Team in this weekend’s Eifel Grand Prix after Lance Stroll was taken unwell.

Lance did not feel 100% this morning and the team took the decision not to run him for the rest of the event.

Nico, who previously deputised for Sergio Perez at the Silverstone events, is familiar with the car and team already, and fortunately was in nearby Cologne.
