Nico Hulkenberg’s Formula 1 career isn’t just a dream but a fairy tale for the German.

Signed for Sauber this season, the 25-year-old had a little trouble fitting into the car during the first pre-season test as his feet were too big for the cockpit [REPORT], a problem which has now been resolved.

“Ha, the media has blown up all these stories. The real issue was that in Jerez we didn’t have the right shoe size for me - that was it,” Hulkenberg told the official F1 website. “Now with the right shoe size everything is perfect.

“Does that make me the F1 Cinderella? That only the one with the ‘right’ shoe size will see a happy ending? Who knows? I do love fairy tales - I just wonder who is playing the wicked stepmother,” he laughed.
