Hülkenberg ready to improve Sauber

By on Saturday, February 2, 2013

New Sauber signing Nico Hulkenberg has said that he is ready to help Sauber take the next step.

Hulkenberg begins his third season at his third different team, having raced for Williams in 2010 and Force India in 2012.

"The Sauber F1 Team made significant progress last year from 2011," he said.

"Now the team is ready to take the next step, and I want to play my part in making that happen. My personal aim is to put in a good, steady performance this season."

Team principal Monisha Kaltenborn admitted that Sauber had been watching Hulkenberg's performances throughout 2012, during which he led the Brazilian Grand Prix.

"We have had our eye on Nico for some time and have been impressed by his performances. He is very quick, but, most importantly, he’s also very efficient. He understands how to pick up as many points as possible from a particular race situation," she said.
