Nico Hülkenberg has admitted that he hasn’t yet held talks with the Williams team about extending his contract beyond the 2010 season, despite team bosses admitting their desire to retain both the young German and his team-mate Rubens Barrichello beyond this season.
Neither driver has formally signed any contract extension with the team, which is currently lying sixth in the Constructors’ standings.
In a frank interview with the press, Hülkenberg admitted that his bosses had “expected more points [finishes]” from him in his rookie year, in the wake of a stellar career in junior motorsport categories where he has won every championship he has contested.
He told Auto Motor und Sport: “I have a contract with the team, but there are options that need to be redeemed. The team has not said anything to me personally, but I am looking forward positively.”
