Nico Hulkenberg is still unsure if his star performance at the Brazilian Grand Prix will make a difference to his future at the Williams team.
The German gave the Williams team its first pole in five years after a sensational performance in mixed conditions during qualifying at Interlagos. He went on to finish in eighth position in the race, helping Williams move past Force India in the standings.
Hulkenberg, however, is still in the dark about his future, and the team is to evaluate Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado in the young driver test in Abu Dhabi.
"I don't know yet. You have to ask Patrick or Frank," said Hulkenberg. "I can't tell you what they think right now. I think I have done everything right this weekend, and made the most out of my chances. It was a solid performance in the race, a good one in qualifying and we will see where we end up."
He reckons, however, that skill should come ahead of money when it comes to choosing a driver and he feels that he and Rubens Barrichello would be a perfect lineup for Williams in 2011.
"Obviously, talent should come ahead of money in Formula 1," he added. "But with the economy having some trouble it has become a valid point and may change some things – but I still hope that things go the right way, how they should go. I think Rubens and I are the perfect driver combination and I really hope we can drive together again."
When asked to rate his chances of staying, he said. "I've no clue. I am neutral. I am right on zero right now."
