Hülkenberg: Sauber in difficult situation
4 July 2013 – Sauber driver Nico Hülkenberg has confirmed the Swiss-based outfit is in a ‘difficult situation’ financially - although he has been ‘assured’ the squad is working to find a solution.
According to recent reports by German newspaper, Bild, development on the C32 has had to stop due to the funding crisis, and several bills are said to have gone unpaid, both to suppliers and to Hülkenberg himself.
When asked about matter ahead of the German Grand Prix, the ninth round in the 2013 FIA F1 World Championship, the 25-year-old replied: “I think it is a difficult situation.
“She [team principal, Monisha Kaltenborn] and the team are working on a solution and on a way to get out of it, to make things better. She has assured me she is working on it.
“There is not much more to say,” he added.
Sauber are struggling this season, although Hülkenberg did score in Britain last Sunday after finishing tenth.
