Every time someone has pointed out his Podium-less run to Nico, he has always taken it on chin. The only memory he rues about is that of Monaco 2016. Starting a great P5, Nico held his position and followed Vettel’s Ferrari. The duo dived into the pits within the interval of 2 laps but a bad safety car timing and a poor decision by their respective pit walls resulted in them getting stuck in traffic.
The Perez side of the garage took the right decision on staying out longer and when he pitted he found himself jumping a lot of cars. While Hulkenberg was relegated back o P7 and having to snatch P6 from Rosberg on the run to the finish line, he also had to see his teammate celebrating the podium.
