Hulkenberg would consider GPDA top job

Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg is considering becoming the next president of the GPDA, after reports have suggested that Ferrari Reserve Driver Pedro de la Rosa, 43, wants to step down.

The Grand Prix Drivers’ Association, primarily concerned with the rights and safety of the Formula 1 drivers, is currently headed by de la Rosa.

But it is believed that the other current GPDA directors, Sebastian Vettel and Jenson Button, are reluctant to take up de la Rosa’s position.

“I could imagine a world champion as the head of the GPDA; someone with perhaps a little more influence,” Hulkenberg, the highly-rated and articulate driver, told Speed Week. “But if I was asked, then I would think about it carefully.”

Hulkenberg has contested 62 grands prix since his debut in 2010. (GMM)
