Hulkenberg in the dark over brake failure

Hulkenberg in the dark over brake failure

Nico Hulkenberg was disappointed when his points-scoring run came to an end while battling for eighth place in Sunday's Indian Grand Prix.

The Sauber driver has been on a great run of late, scoring points in each of the last four grands prix.

Chasing a fifth successive top-ten result, Hulkenberg was forced to park his C32 when his brakes failed just six laps from the end of the Indian GP.

"Today I would have passed the finish line in eighth place," he said.

"We don't know yet what happened.

"When I was braking into the last turn something clicked and all of a sudden my brakes were gone. Something must have been broken on the car.

"Following that I pitted and went out again, but something wasn't right. It is very disappointing."
