Nico Hulkenberg has dismissed concerns that Formula 1 drivers could strike over unpaid wages.

Hulkenberg is reportedly one of a number of drivers who are owed money either by their current employer or previous teams.

The German confirmed that members of the Grand Prix Drivers Association had discussed the matter but ruled out strike action.

"It is an issue which we have been discussing in the GPDA," he told Sky Sports News. "It's not something we like, and in the pinnacle of motorsport it is not good to have, and we are trying to work on this issue."

"In the media, there have been reports of striking, but that is not what we have discussed in the GPDA. Yes, we have talked about the issue and we want measures against it, but a strike is not a possibility."

Hulkenberg says that he has had experience of delayed payments and reckons the drivers can work together to find a solution.

"I don't know, but that's what we're working on," he said when asked about what could be done. "We all need to stick the heads together to see what we can do and come up with a solution."

"My current team is pretty good with that," he said of payments. "But I still had and have some issues with that as well."
