Dreaming is a dangerous thing in F1 – Hulkenberg

Nico Hulkenberg says he is content for now at Force India.

The German’s teammate, Mexican Sergio Perez, makes no secret of his desire for a seat further up the grid, after the disappointment of his first chance with a top team, McLaren, in 2013.

Force India chief Bob Fernley has also said that Hulkenberg, one of the most highly-rated drivers not already with a top team, will not be stopped from moving up the grid in the near-future.

But the 28-year-old inked a two-year contract extension late last year to stay with the Silverstone based team until the end of 2017.

He says he is happy where he is.

“I have extended my contract at Force India and I am eager to deliver the best,” Hulkenberg told F1’s official website.

“For me, it’s not just about the rows (on the grid) — there is more to it. Formula one has always been a team sport. It’s about the people you work with — and I’m currently very happy with my team.”

But when told that he must be coveting a Ferrari seat for the future, Hulkenberg insisted: “As I just said, right now I am very happy where I am. Force India is a cool team.

“And dreaming is a dangerous thing in F1 — especially dreaming in red.”
