'Make Formula 1 great again' - Hulkenberg takes aim at Trump


Donald Trump has his fair share of critics, and Formula One's Nico Hulkenberg found a creative way to voice his dissent towards the new president of the United States.

The German, who drives for Renault, used Twitter to take aim at the controversial businessman-turned-politician. 

Hulkenberg posted a picture of an unconventional Renault road car, writing: "Make Formula 1 great again! My new R.S.16 is ready for the @F1 season! #alternativefacts @RenaultSportF1".

The use of the hashtag alternativefacts is a reference to a term used by one of Trump's senior White House aides, Kellyanne Conway, in a row over the attendance figures for the president's inauguration on Friday.

Renault will reveal their 2017 car on February 21, and Hulkenberg will hope it is considerably faster than the road car he referenced.
