Nico Hulkenberg (GER) Force India F1 Team. Formula One World Championship, Rd18, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Preparations, Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi, UAE, Thursday 1 November 2012.Nov.2 (GMM) Nico Hulkenberg sounds open about a future at Ferrari, despite earlier denying suggestions he is only switching from Force India to Ferrari-powered Sauber next year in order to pave a way to the fabled Maranello team.

“Ferrari is very special, I will not deny that,” he is now quoted as saying by SID news agency.

“But first of all I look forward to my job at Sauber. What comes next is anybody’s guess and, anyway, it’s very far away at the moment.

“It’s going to depend on everything – on how well next season goes,” added Hulkenberg.

Hulkenberg, 25, did admit that he had some talks with Ferrari prior to signing with Sauber for 2013.
