Saldo supports Nico Hülkenberg’s return to formula

Leading international Fintech company Saldo is proud to sponsor German Formula driver Nico Hülkenberg’s return to the Formula Series as Hulkenberg replaces Sergio Perez in the legendary Silverstone race this weekend. Hülkenberg was called in to replace Perez once Perez tested positive for COVID-19.

ImgSaldo got an exceptional opportunity as an internationalizing company to be part of the greatest series in motorsports - the Formula. The Saldo logo will shine on Hülkenberg’s helmet when he shows off his talents on the track again at Silverstone.

-We were presented with a great opportunity to support Hülkenberg's return to the big stage. This is an exciting opportunity for us as a rapidly growing Finnish internationalizing company to join the formula circus, says Mr. Jarkko Mäensivu, CEO of Saldo Finance.

Saldo is directly sponsoring Hülkenberg, who represents Racing Point Team in the Silverstone Grand Prix.

-Racing Point is a high-class, interesting racing team in all respects. Backed by Mercedes' technology they compete for podium places in any race, Mr. Jarkko Mäensivu underlines.

As a Formula driver, Hülkenberg is already experienced, although he was initially sidelined for the early half of the 2020 season. Getting back behind the wheel in Silverstone is the place to shine, as it’s without a doubt one of the most legendary classic races. Exactly 70 years ago, the first ever formula race was held in Silverstone so it is hard to imagine a better comeback to the formula tracks for Hülkenberg than the most watched sporting event of the weekend.

Saldo is proud to support Nico Hülkenberg and wishes him good luck and great success in the race.
