Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg will partner Sebastian Vettel in the Nations Cup at this year's Race of Champions event.

Hulkenberg and Vettel will pair up for Team Germany at the event which will take place at London's former Olympic Stadium in November.

Hulkenberg fills the void left by Michael Schumacher, who partnered Vettel to six consecutive Race of Champions triumphs between 2007 and 2012.

"I’ve had a very good year so far and I’m very excited to be making my Race Of Champions debut," said Hulkenberg, who claimed victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours in June.

"I’ve always wanted to take part but it never worked out so now I’m really happy to be a part of it and looking forward to it.

"I’m obviously stepping into big shoes to replace Michael Schumacher, which is a huge honour as well. I feel very happy and positive about that and it will be fun to team up with Seb and race and fight for Team Germany."
