The incredible Hulkenberg?

Nico Hulkenberg, who showed very well in the A1GP Series, is being heavily promoted at the moment by his manager Willi Weber, the man who managed Michael Schumacher. Weber told the German magazine Sport Bild that he is talking to Renault's Flavio Briatore about arranging a test for Hulkenberg later in the year. It is not clear whether Weber will be successful as Renault not only has three F1 drivers but also a fairly busy group of young drivers who all want to be F1 stars in the future.

The good news is that Hulkenberg is driving for the ASM team in the Formula 3 Eurocup. The team has won the last three titles with Jamie Green, Lewis Hamilton and Paul di Resta and therefore Hulkenberg should be able to show off his talents if he can outrun his ASM team mates Romain Grosjean, Kamui Kobayashi and Tom Dillmann.
