30.04.2010 - MyOris meets AT&T Williams star Nico Hülkenberg and your chance to win!
2010 has seen some interesting changes at AT&T Williams, including the promotion of young German Nico Hülkenberg to main driver from test driver – a position he held for two years.
To find out how his life has changed, and how the season is going so far for the rookie, MyOris caught up with him at the Williams motorhome in China.
MyOris: So Nico how does it feel being a Formula One driver?
Nico Hülkenberg: It feels really good! It’s a lot of responsibility with the team, the 500 people that work for the team, the sponsors and the budget in the background. But it’s what I’ve always worked for and I’m happy with the situation I’m in and looking forward to the whole season.
MyOris: Has your life changed since you became one of the main drivers for AT&T Williams?
NH: My life hasn’t really changed. There’s just a bit more media attention and a bit more 'official life’. I think I haven’t changed personally, and I don’t want to, to be honest.
MyOris: What are you most looking forward to this season?
NH: I’m looking forward to all of the races, to working with the team and my engineers and working on us getting better. My main aims for 2010 are to learn a lot, and develop myself and my driving. I’ve settled down in the team well and I’d like to get some good consistent results which make me happy – and to beat my team mate as often as I can!
MyOris: What has been your favourite moment of the season so far?
NH: Definitely qualifying in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia in the wet. Getting P5 was a very nice result for me personally, and for the team. [Nico went on to finish 10th in the race in Malaysia and gain his first ever point in Formula One]
MyOris: You travel all over the world to drive. What are the three things you never leave home without?
NH: My laptop, my Blackberry and my Oris TT3 Chronograph – a very nice watch.
