Formula One World Champion 1997 Jacques Villenenuve is convinced that some are overestimating the abilities of Nico Hulkenberg, who has already appeared on 173 . racing, he has never stepped on the stage.
The Haas team recently extended a contract with Romain Grosjean, and team boss Guenther Steiner has admitted that Nico Hulkenberg, who leaves Renault after the season, was also in the running for the US team.
While Red Bull boss Christian Horner was greatly surprised by the selection of Haas, Jacques Villeneu's decision to make Grosjean seems perfectly logical.
“Haas has chosen among the racers who have practically the most races without a single victory. Hulkenberg has not even been on the podium yet, so why change anything? If Haas were to replace Grosjean, we would have to bring either a young racer or someone who can win races like Ricciardo. ”
