hulkenberg4-lgNico Hulkenberg completed an outstanding performance at Korean Grand Prix on last race weekend. The German held off two world champions, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso.

In the final session of the race he perfectly holding off Hamilton and Alonso, Hulkenberg reached a career best result of fourth at the Korea Grand Prix.

Well-timed consequences spread out in the F1 paddock that, Lotus will pick him for 2014 season and also boost his value for upcoming season.

Following the race Fernando Alonso says that Hulkenberg made “superb” and “perfect” race in Korea. “He deserved to be in front of us,” EFE news agency quotes Alonso as saying, “because he did a fantastic race. Sauber have been very good this weekend, they’ve done a great job.”

But Hulkenberg is quoted by Brazil’s O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper: “The new Pirelli tyres help to explain what is happening with us, but it’s not everything. We have also improved the car. I would say it’s 50 per cent for both,” he added.

“To say that I regret (moving from Force India) is a bit much,” he is quoted by France’s L’Equipe, “but I was not very happy because I wanted to make a step forward and actually it was quite a step back.

“But when you make choices in life, they can be good or bad but the best thing to do is to try to turn it around in your favour,” Hulkenberg added.

“After seven or eight races, there were no real signs of improvement, but then suddenly there was a click.”
