Now it seems like the two have finally gotten married, though it meant that the Hulk missed out on covering the French Grand Prix practice and qualifying session for Servus TV.

After 6 years together, Hulkenberg upped the ante on the romantic front when he proposed in Venice. Later on, they moved in together to a new shared apartment in Monaco.

After graduating from university in Lithuania, Ruskyte started her own fashion business. It is worth mentioning that she primarily works with handmade crochet clothes and beachwear.

When Hulkenberg raced in Formula One, the Lithuanian model was a frequent paddock visitor to cheer on her partner.

Now, Hulkenberg is busy hoping to get a chance to return to a Formula One seat. The German driver lost his seat at the end of the 2019 season.

Admittedly, he did have two cameo appearances in 2020 to replace Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll, respectively. Now, the 33-year-old is taking on a reserve driver role for Aston Martin and Mercedes.

While he bides his time, he is acting as a pundit for Servus TV. It is worth mentioning that after he spent time with Ruskyte, Hulkenberg had to rush back to France.

This was because he was still on call for commentary duty, but he was able to get some time off for the proposal in Venice. Now, the driver will be hoping to witness an exciting race at the Paul Ricard Circuit.

Of course, he will be missing the feeling of being out on the racetrack.
