Force India’s reserve driver Nico Hulkenberg has split from manager Willi Weber.

Hulkenberg sais he will now manage his own affairs, as some other F1 drivers including Sebastian Vettel do.

Hulkenberg, who raced for Williams in 2010 but lost his seat at the end of the year, announced the split on his website:

Nico Hulkenberg and manager Willi Weber part their ways. The 23-year-old Formula 1 driver from now on takes management matters in his own hands.

“Both sides are currently working on a smooth changeover and on a satisfying solution for anyone. Hulkenberg will from now on be supported in executing his management issues by his former PR advisor Timo Gans.”

Weber has been associated with Hulkenberg since running the driver in the 2006-07 A1 Grand Prix season for Team Germany, when they won the championship.

Weber previously managed Michael Schumacher and his brother Ralf.
