Hülkenberg completes seat fitting at Sauber
30 December 2012 – Nico Hülkenberg had a seat fitting for Sauber's new C32 chassis this week, beginning his transition phase from Force India. Speaking to GPUpdate.net last month, the German outlined his desire to achieve podium finishes at the team.
Hülkenberg, who has two Formula 1 seasons under his belt, met with engineers and sat in a base tub at the outfit's Hinwil factory. The 25-year-old will race alongside Esteban Gutiérrez next season, the Mexican graduating from feeder series GP2.
Sauber has already announced that its 2013 car will be ready in time for the opening pre-season test at the Circuito de Jerez, taking place from February 5-8.
