Hulkenberg would consider GPDA top job

Nico Hulkenberg has not ruled out becoming the next president of the GPDA.

The Grand Prix Drivers' Association, primarily concerned with the rights and safety of the F1 drivers, is currently headed by Pedro de la Rosa.

Reports in 2014, however, have suggested that Ferrari reserve driver de la Rosa, 43, wants to step down.

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," German Hulkenberg, the highly-rated and articulate Force India driver, told Speed Week.

"But if I was asked, then I would think about it carefully," said the 26-year-old.

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