Nico Hulkenberg was not competed in Sunday’s afternoon’s Australian Grand Prix following his Sauber surrendered to technical problems. 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.

Team declared freshly that, he will compete in the Malaysian Grand Prix with a new chassis, Sauber send his problematic C32 back to Hinwil for assessment.

Hulkenberg admits that he was bitterly disappointed following technical problems. Also he added Melbourne is not a good place for him.

“I’m bitterly disappointed about what happened, but at the same time I’m not blaming anyone,” said Hülkenberg.

“Things like this happen in racing. What is particularly bothering me is the fact that I lost all this mileage, which is so important particularly at the beginning of the season. It would have given me a lot of valuable data and information for the next races.

“Obviously, Melbourne is not a good place for me. It was my third Grand Prix here and the third time that I leave this place empty handed. The only good thing is that the next race takes place next weekend.”
