Eddie Jordan, the man who brought us Schumi’s return to F1, says Nico Hulkerberg will be heading to Force India – not Lotus – next season.

The former team boss has proven to be right several times in the past when making outlandish predictions.

Not only was EJ the first to reveal that Michael Schumacher would be back in Formula One in 2010 with Mercedes but years later he also announced that Lewis Hamilton would be taking the German’s place at the Brackley outfit.

And now he’s predicting that Hulkenberg won’t be heading to Lotus next season as many are expecting. Rather, he’ll be returning to Force India.

“Jordan believes Nico Hulkenberg will return to Force India next season, with Felipe Massa probably going to Lotus,” the BBC reported.

Having spent 2011 as a Force India test driver, Hulkenberg took a race-seat in 2012 only to leave after one season and move to Sauber.

As for the German, he’s not saying much about his future except that he expects it to be resolved in the near future.

“I’m sure it will happen in the next couple of weeks, I’m confident we will get something sorted,” the Sauber driver told Sky Sports F1.
