Hulkenberg to use new chassis in Malaysia 18 March, 2013 Nico Hulkenberg After the disappointment in Australia, Nico Hulkenberg will tackle this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix with a new Sauber chassis. With just over an hour before his first race for the Swiss team in Melbourne, mechanics went to prepare the grey C32 for the race but “fuel suddenly splashed out of the car,” according to well-connected Blick correspondent Roger Benoit. “(It was) a problem with the fuel tank, which is directly behind the driver.” Team manager Beat Zehnder: “It must be a crack in the tank. It’s something I’ve not experienced in twenty years.” Benoit revealed that Hulkenberg’s C32 – which could not be raced in Australia – has now been sent back to Switzerland, despite practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix looming in mere days. He wrote that the 25-year-old will use the spare car at Sepang, while another spare is sent to Malaysia from Hinwil as soon as possible. “I’m bitterly disappointed but at the same time I’m not blaming anyone,” said German Hulkenberg on Sunday. “Things like this happen in racing.” Tweet Related NewsSauber: It is certain that such a race result is very disappointingSauber: Overall it has been a good weekend for us so farSauber: The measures we took to move forward appear to work wellMalaysian Grand Prix: Sauber preview Sepang weekendHulkenberg: Thank you guys but this is not acceptableSauber: We are happy about this resultLotus: It’s not been the best day for usSauber: We are confident for a strong raceSauber: Set-up changes we made the drivers were happierSauber: Target for the race is to finish with both cars in the points fgfdgfdgdf Wtf is wrong with the website?
