Nico Hulkenberg To Replace Sutil 2012 Force India

Force India's reserve driver Nico Hulkenberg is set to replace Adrian Sutil for 2012 reports Autosport.  The news will not be formalized before December, but Force India have made their driver choice for 2012 which are Hulkenberg and Paul Di Resta.

Adrian Sutil was at the Silverstone outfit since his arrival in Formula 1 in 2007 with the then called Spyker team. It is thought the evening of the Chinese Grand Prix, where he is alleged to have assaulted Eric Lux, co-owner of Lotus Renault GP, didn't do him any favours in keeping his 5 year race seat with Force India.

Sutil was spotted late summer visiting the Williams headquarters and is believed to be in talks to replace Rubens Barrichello in 2012, but Kimi Raikkonen who also visited the Williams headquarters would remain the first choice for the British team.

Hulkenberg had to settle for the Force India reserve driver role this year following his departure from Williams in 2010, who had preferred the big sponsorship of Pastor Maldonado.
