Nico Hulkenberg, who has stepped in for Sergio Perez as he self-isolated after a positive test for coronavirus, seems to have a problem with his Racing Point car in the garage. Much of the rest of the drivers’ cars are now in situ on the grid. Hulkenberg was due to start 13th on the grid but he seems likely to have start the race from the pit lane. He had to make a mad dash from Germany to take Perez’s seat and it would be a nightmare if he wasn’t able to start at all.
