That Willi Webber quote is fun, though I think Hulkenburg might be better served getting track time in a Force India, McLaren has better links to Merc, and would probably give him more time to race in other series. Especially as they’ve already got Paffet.
Seems very odd that Whitmarsh feels he has to protect Button from Hulkenburg, possibly Webber enjoying himself with the media, jibing Whitmarsh for not giving his boy the seat. Cause a bit of trouble, probably won’t do his relationship with McLaren any good, not that he seems to care, was saying a year back that his aim for Hulkenburg was Ferrari. My god I hope one day Ferrari stops capturing all these minds as the ultimate place a driver could possibly be. Almost hope Monty brings back the good old days when Ferrari hadn’t been winning enough to delude themselves into thinking they where more important than the sport.
If I was Hulkenburg I’d have tried to get a race seat at Virgin or Torro Rosso, an aim to beat my teamate, that would keep him race sharp if an oppourtunity came up, an provide more chances to impress, he’s got the talent.
