Hulkenberg: I’m hanging here like a cow… get me out of this car!

Nico Hulkenberg was trapped for several minutes in his Renault after crashing and barrel-rolling into the barriers in an opening lap melee at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Renault was tagged mid-corner by the Haas of Romain Grosjean, Hulkenberg’s car then bounced and catapulted before ending upside down on top of the safety barriers.

Marshals were rapid to extinguish what appeared to be a small fire on the upside-down car before they righted the car and Hulkenberg climbed out apparently unscathed.

The Halo doing a great job to prevent a head injury which might have been certain without it.

During the incident, the world breathed a sigh of relief as, while upsidedown Hulkenberg said over the radio: “I’m hanging here like a cow… get me out of this car!”
