Nico Hulkenberg is to join Sauber as one of two team drivers for the 2013 season, the Swiss Formula One team confirmed on Wednesday.

“It’s a well-placed team and very competitive,” said Hulkenberg. “Plus it’s a team in which young drivers have repeatedly delivered exceptional performances. I would like to take up that baton.”

The German driver will finish the season with current employers Force India, with whom he returned to Formula One this year.

“We’ve been observing Nico for some time now and his performances have been very persuasive,” said Sauber boss Monisha Kaltenborn. “I’m sure he will fit in very well.”
