Knock and the door will be opened, or not in the case of Nico Hulkenberg who will return to Force India in 2014 after failing to find a drive with the top five. The German previously raced for the Silverstone based team in 2012 before setting sail for Sauber this year. However once again the fiscal situation didn’t all add up and there was a gaping hole in the colllumn marked salary at Hinwill. Nico is rumored to have taken a portion of his salary up front for next year after difficulties last time he raced in white, green and orange.
The most interesting aspect has not been the announcement but the lack of one with regards to his team mate. Force India have traditionally always waited until after the season ends and announced both drivers together. Current drivers Paul Di Resta and Adrian Sutil remain in contention alongside McLaren outcast Sergio Perez.
