Nico Hulkenberg has likened his situation to that of Jenson Button, as Sauber have not provided him with a car to show his true potential this year.

On the one hand he is lauded as one of Formula 1’s brightest new talents, and on the other apparently ruing a backwards step from Force India to Sauber over the winter.

But the 25-year-old likened his career so far to Jenson Button’s early years: a long struggle initially that ultimately turned into wins, a world title and a plum seat at McLaren.

“Jenson was with Honda for many years when he was unable to show his ability because the car wasn’t good enough. Sometimes it happens,” Hulkenberg is quoted by the Sun newspaper. “You have to be patient. That’s life.” (GMM)
