Looks like a pole in a pretty slow car in your rookie season against the most experienced man in a Formula 1 car isn't enough to keep a your race seat.

Adie, both Patrick Head and Sir Frank Williams are not the easiest people to work with in the Paddock. Just ask Damon Hill and Jacques Villeneuve. :) In the long run it may be the best move for Hulkenberg.

the reality is Nico has been out raced and out qualified by an aging Rubens throughout the year and therefore has not done enough to retain his seat. That much is nothing to do with money. In order to claim your place at the highest level in any sport, you have to usurp those there all ready. He has failed to do this. This is the reason why Williams are replacing him. Bottom line: if he had beaten Rubens into the ground, Williams a would not be letting him go.

Come on! This was his rookie season and he was catching Barrichello race by race.. Barrichello's time is over, but Hulk's time is just coming. Good luck for Hulk looking for a new team!

Maybe a swap with Petrov could be good for both...There are too many Germans in F1 to make "waves" and receive some attencion. I don't know if this decision is good for Williams, maybe this year they will not receive much support from the 2nd driver, but keeping a young gun in team could eventually give some good money in future like in the case of Rosberg. Williams needs a fast driver. The seat in Renault will be one of the best for next year.
