I don’t see any deficit at Sauber – Hulkenberg

Published

on

Sauber’s new speedy Nico Hulkenberg has talks about his first experience with his new team. This season he will race with Esteban Gutierrez for Sauber.

The German first drove a Formula 1 car in a test for 2007 Williams, in 2010 Hulkenberg was extended his deal with Williams as race driver role. Following he joined Force India in 2011 as reserve driver role and last year he successively completed another race driving job with Force India.

Hulkenberg now fully prepared for 2013 F1 with new team, and he is taking up the change and is already looking forward to life with F1 racings’ only Swiss squad.

Nico interviewed with Formula1.com, when asked that, the team is heading into the new season with two new drivers. How do you think the team will compensate for this?

“I don’t see any deficit to be honest. Indeed I am new in the team, but not new in F1, and Esteban (Gutierrez) has gained experience as a test driver with Sauber so he is not new to them. I would say there is no deficit, but rather the chance to make good acquaintances.”

Q: Your team mate Esteban Gutierrez is a rookie, so many would consider you the team leader. How does that affect you in the lead up to the start of the season?

“The fact that people are regarding me as the team leader doesn’t change much. At the Sauber F1 team both drivers get the same equipment and treatment. I will just work harder together with Esteban to bring the team forward.” Nico said.

When comparing the Sauber factory to those of your two previous employers, Williams and Force India, what is different?

“Firstly it is in Switzerland! And to get more into detail, the wind tunnel stands out significantly – it is a really big beast. Overall, the infrastructure is definitely first class.” The German added.
