Hulkenberg: Pretty disappointing

Hulkenberg: Pretty disappointing

Nico Hulkenberg is not expecting a repeat of his Melbourne misery as Sauber have found the cause of his car's problem.

Having qualified 11th for the Australian Grand Prix, Hulkenberg was forced to miss the race when his team discovered an issue with his fuel system.

Withdrawn due to safety concerns, the German could do nothing but watch as the 2013 season got underway without him.

"It was pretty disappointing, obviously," said the 25-year-old, who is expecting to contest his first race as a Sauber driver this Sunday at Sepang.

"The engineers had a deep look and a good analysis of what happened, both on the circuit and back in England and they understand the problem, they know what happened."
