Hulkenberg pokes fun at pink Force India

Updated: 

Force India's decision to change their livery to pink was the talk of Formula One on Tuesday and Nico Hulkenberg has poked fun at his former team following the switch.

The German left Force India at the end of the 2016 season after the team opted against taking up an option on his contract, Esteban Ocon selected to partner Sergio Perez.

Hulkenberg duly signed a "multi-year" deal with Renault and he showed good pace during testing, completing 314 laps and going faster than team-mate Jolyon Palmer.

With the opening race of the season less than two weeks away Force India revealed their new look, and Hulkenberg has jokingly suggested it was the real reason for his exit.
