Nico Hülkenberg is poised to race for Renault next season after his Force India team said on Friday that he would be leaving at the end of the season “to pursue other opportunities within Formula One”.
The 2015 Le Mans winner has been strongly linked to the French team and Force India sources confirmed the German was heading to that team. There was no immediate confirmation from Renault, however.
“Everybody at Sahara Force India wishes Nico well as he embarks upon a different path in Formula One,” the Force India team principal, Vijay Mallya, said in a statement.
“While it’s true we will miss Nico, we respect his decision to explore fresh opportunities and it would be wrong to stand in his way.”
