Nico Hulkenberg:Not getting the credit he deserves

I feel the need to write a blog on what a great job Nico Hulkenberg has been doing this season,especially since Valencia,because he seems to be getting no credit from any of the media in the UK and worldwide from what I’ve seen,who only seem to care about Di Resta at Force India,especially when he does well.

Yes,Nico has been outqualified by Paul Di Resta 8 times to 7 but has been more than a match for him when it has comes to races,especially recently where he has been the better driver in fact.

After somehow not getting a seat for the 2011 season after his sensational pole in Brazil and driving well in a slow Williams in 2010,it obviously did take Nico a while to get back up to speed as he had never drove on pirelli tyres before 2012 testing but did score points in Malaysia,Spain and Monaco early in the year.

In Valencia though,it was where everything came together and he drove a simply fantastic race to finish 5th,without KERS for most of the race.

2 races later in Germany he qualified a sensational 4th but Force India’s lack of  race pace meant he only finished in 9th place.

Then,a fantastic drive at Spa.Yes,Turn 1 incident was a massive help but he drove a perfect team,beating Massa,Webber and Schumacher and finished 4th,less than 3 seconds behind Kimi.Not a word in the British media though,but when Paul finished 4th,they kept going on about it.

Nico also drove beautifully in Japan,coming through from 15th to finish 7th after getting up to 8th on the opening lap,finishing just behind Kimi.

Hulkenberg has beaten Di Resta in 5 of the last 7 races they’ve both finished and I can see Nico beating Di Resta in the drivers championship at this rate,he is doing a great job since he has come back up to speed and it deserves to be recognised.

I would go as far as saying Nico has more talent,and is a better than Di Resta,and hopefully for Hulkenberg’s sake,he finishes 2012 strongly and gets a better car in 2013.Nico has impressed me hugely.
