F1 » Hülkenberg: Talent should come ahead of money in F1

He might have proven his credentials beyond all doubt in blitzing every single one of his rivals for a wholly unanticipated maiden pole position in Brazil, but still Nico Hülkenberg remains far from sure about his Williams F1 future...

@ James Montgomery

"the key word is the tile"..Really, I think you miss the point or what really going on..

Money is the key in F1 today and its been that way for a very long time. Hulkenburg is correct it SHOULD be about talent. Money rules. Sir. Frank still has not made a firm statement,about taking 15m or keep the talent, Rubins and Hulkenberg..

I don't think money can buy a championship in F1, well, maybe not yet.
Come to think about it I'm not really sure, now!

The latest rumor is that it's not Hulk's seat that's in jeopardy. I believe next year we will se Pastor and Nico in the Williams seat. Weber is too cunning of a manager to write a one page contract without a golden parachute. Besides, even if he would lose Williams' seat I can see some of the top teams making a move.

He is only saying this because he doesn't have the sponsors behind him. Just wishful thinking of his behalf. Ask Frank about losing 3 sponsors next year

This guy has won everywhere he's been. If he's not in F1 next year unfortunately that would be his manager's fault. Even the most talented people bring corporate sponsorship (i.e Alonso, etc)

Had they started a while back looking for a sponsor in his junior formula years they could have easily found one, he was just that good. But it's still not too late. His manager should start burning the midnight oil in search of one.

I'm sure the "Flabster" would have found him a ride somewhere by now.

Money comes before everything in picking the tracks, and money is one of the big factors taken into account by the FIA when it chooses which teams are allowed to play the game, so its not really surprising that money determines who sits in the car on race day.

Maldonado is an inconsistent driver, too old for a career by actual F1 standards and backed by capitals coming from doubious origins. Those capitals available for Williams only on a no value parole basis. Great risk, money may be available for 2011 but if with no results, they can be shure real sponsors will keep farder away in 2012.

my personal take is that williams will not take maldonado on board. they have a collaboration with f2 and taking on the current gp2 champion wont look good for the series
