F1 driver Hulkenberg prefers the real thing

By

Formula 1 rookie Nico Hulkenberg is no great fan of motor racing simulations.


AT&T Williams' Nico Hulkenberg is one of the new drivers in Formula 1 this season. He is tipped to be rookie of the year, in part because he won the GP2 crown in 2009 even though it was his first season in that competition.

Even though the Williams team has a sophisticated simulator, Hulkenberg uses it as little as possible.

He says the simulator is useful for learning a course, but "it is not real" as the driver doesn't feel the wind, g-forces, oversteer, understeer and so on. Consequently, he doesn't like to use it too much.

Asked about commercially available racing simulations, Hulkenberg said "I don't have a PlayStation or an Xbox."

You can see his point. If an ordinary day at work involved driving a multimillion dollar racing car, would you want to waste time in a watered-down virtual experience during your spare time?
