Nico Hulkenberg’s name continues to be linked with the second Ferrari F1 seat in 2014, and the German admits that he would be very happy to get the opportunity to go to Maranello.
Many see his position at Sauber as a sort of holding camp, allowing Ferrari to keep an eye on him and call on his services should he fit the team’s plans in 2014. However, he says that his future plans are open.
“It’s a good team, for sure, one of the top teams, and if you’d get the chance you’d probably do it,” he said of Ferrari. “But at this point we’re still looking at the options of what we can do, where to position ourselves. Nothing is decided, and I think it will still take a little while.”
Hulkenberg denied that his future might depend on what happens to Kimi Raikkonen.
“Not necessarily,” he said. “Obviously, Kimi is playing a role there, but it’s not necessarily depending all on him.”
Regarding how things might play out, he said: “What you want and what is happening, that is sometimes not the same. You have to wait and see. I want to make a decision when I feel that I’ve made the right choice and when I’m comfortable with everything included in the deal.”
