Nico Hulkenberg laughs at Formula 1 record in Singapore

Nico Hulkenberg is set to take over an unenviable record in Formula 1 this weekend.

Nico Hulkenberg is set to take over an unenviable record in Formula 1.

In Singapore, the German is in line to beat countryman Adrian Sutil's mantle as the driver with the most grand prix starts - 128 - without a single podium.

"I have waited a long time and worked really hard to have this record," the Renault driver joked to German media when asked about it.

"The Sutil era is ending and the Hulkenberg era begins."

Hulkenberg has finished sixth in three of this season's grands prix.
