Hulkenberg not fussy over 2012 teammate

Global Motorsport Media

Nico Hulkenberg has admitted he will be "delighted" if his "long" wait to return to the Grand Prix grid finally ends on Thursday.

Force India is expected to announce that the former Williams driver will step up from the reserve and 'Friday' role to join Paul di Resta on the grid in 2012.

Some media commentators, however, insist that it will be team incumbent Adrian Sutil confirmed alongside Scottish rookie di Resta, leaving 24-year-old Hulkenberg out in the cold again.

Whichever way it goes, Hulkenberg told the German news agency DPA he is ready for 2012.

"My preparation schedule is quite normal, with a training camp in January and then the usual routine throughout the year," he said.

If his Grand Prix return is confirmed as expected, the final question will be the identity of Hulkenberg's teammate -- Sutil or di Resta.

"For us drivers it's really not that important. I get along with Adrian just as well as I do with Paul," he insisted.
