Nico Hulkenberg has claimed that his future may lie in the World Endurance Championship if he continues to struggle to find a competitive Formula One drive.
Despite being regularly touted for success in Formula One off the back of several impressive performances and a stellar rookie career which more than rivals current World Champion Lewis Hamilton's, Hulkenberg has regularly been overlooked for top drives.
Meanwhile his 2015 Force India seems to be a step down from last years car, with Hulkenberg and team mate Sergio Perez finishing last weekends Bahrain Grand Prix 12th and 8th compared to their 5th and 3rd placed finishes in 2014.
Hulkenberg said that whilst his goal is still 'to win races and become world champion... maybe (Porsche) is a new home for the future', before adding that has not been in contact with any teams over a drive for 2016.
On his chances for the rest of the Formula One season, Hulkenberg admitted that 'it is not an easy situation' and that 'the reality is that right now we are simply too slow and can't do very much.'
Hulkenberg will make his Porsche and WEC debut at the 6 Heures de Spa-Francorchamps in two weeks time.
