SAUBER'S 2013 DRIVERS: Drivers Nico Hulkenberg (right) and Esteban Gutierrez race the new Sauber C32 car during the 2013 Formula 1 season.

JEREZ DE LA FRONTERA, Spain - Formula 1 is a team sport but drivers are basically "egomaniacs" on the track said Sauber's Nico Hulkenberg.

He said drivers did not have to be "ruthless" although "that's always a matter of opinion".

Hulkenberg, who has joined Sauber from Force India, said he had no difficulty settling into a new team and liked the look of the C32 Sauber.

F1'S NEW DRIVERS

Hulkenberg said: "It is innovative and aggressive, something new. You have to think aggressively and be innovative to make a step forward in F1."

Sauber will go into the season with the new driver line-up of Hulkenberg and Esteban Gutierrez, who was testing the car in Jerez, Spain in February 2013.

The Swiss team finished on the podium four times in 2012 and was sixth in the Constructors' championship.
