Nico Hulkenberg during the German Grand Prix weekend did not deny reports that he has activated a termination clause in his contract with the beleaguered Sauber team.

Having already not denied the struggling Swiss team’s failure to pay him since May, the reports on Sunday had said that the 25-year-old will continue to drive for Sauber in 2013.

But the German and his manager Werner Heinz have reportedly terminated the deal for breach of contract, meaning Hulkenberg is now free to leave Sauber at any time.

Rumours at the Nurburgring suggested that Heinz has already been in talks with Lotus, while Hulkenberg has also been linked with a future move to Ferrari.

Asked on Sunday about the contract rumours, Hulkenberg did not deny that the Sauber deal has been terminated.

“Unfortunately I can’t and I won’t talk about contractual details,” he told German broadcaster Sky.

But “clearly, I need to take care of my future,” Hulkenberg admitted. “Nothing is impossible or excluded.” (GMM)

    Stoner, after reading through most of your diarrhea, I have concluded that you are truly an idiot. And judging by your screen name, an immature one at that.
