Nico Hulkenberg, MoneyGram Haas F1 Team

Nico Hülkenberg joins MoneyGram Haas F1 Team for the 2023 FIA Formula 1 World Championship to start his 10th full-time campaign at the pinnacle of motorsport. Having been used as a ‘super-sub’ in recent seasons, Hülkenberg has earned himself a race seat with Haas F1 Team - the only American team competing in Formula 1.

Hülkenberg’s ascent through the junior categories started back in his homeland of Germany, winning the German Junior Kart Championship at the age of 15 in 2002. A year later, he would go on to win the German Kart Championship, where he remained for one more season, finishing as runner-up in the final standings.

The jump to open-wheel racing was made seamlessly with Hülkenberg winning the 2005 Formula BMW ADAC on his debut, scoring eight wins, 14 podiums and nine pole positions on his journey to becoming champion. The following year presented the opportunity to race in the Rercaro Formel 3 Cup with Josef Kaufmann Racing, where he eventually finished fifth in his rookie season, a season highlighted by one race win in Hockenheim.
