F1 star slammed for TMI excuse

Nico Hulkenberg will drive in the Eifel Grand Prix in the place of a Racing Point driver who “doesn’t have the absolute will” for F1.

"What an unbelievable w***er”

Nico Hulkenberg will be driving Lance Stroll's car.

The Eifel Grand Prix could be the perfect setting for Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton to equal Michael Schumacher’s F1 win record.

It could be the perfect setting to equal the record in Germany with the Eifel Grand Prix at Nurburgring, as Hamilton starts on the front row of the grid, just behind teammate Valtteri Bottas.

Lights out at 11.10pm AEDT.

F1 star slammed for TMI excuse

But fellow Canadian and 1997 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve has slammed Stroll for a stomach bug keeping him out of the car.

“Even if you have a stomach ache or have not eaten for a whole week, you still go racing,” he told Sky Italia.

“If you’re really hungry to make it in Formula 1 , you’re always going to race and not quit.

“So either Lance is really in a lot of pain and pain, which means he has something bad going on, or he simply doesn’t have the absolute will to make it.”
