Nico Hulkenberg

Hulkenberg forced out from the Australian GP following fuel system issue

(Formula1.com) Nico Hulkenberg will be forced to sit out Sunday’s afternoon’s 2013 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix after his Sauber succumbed to technical issues. Despite some last-minute work, a fuel system problem on Hulkenberg’s C32 couldn’t be fixed and the team decided he should not race on safety grounds.

The young German had qualified 11th on the Melbourne grid on Sunday morning following Saturday’s Q2 and Q3 postponement. Rookie team mate Esteban Gutierrez will start the Melbourn race from 18th.

Hulkenberg, who joined Sauber from Force India for this season, hasn’t enjoyed the best of luck in Australia. Despite competing twice before in 2010 and 2012, he has never finished an Albert Park race, retiring on both occasions.
