“I’m very keen to go racing again in Formula 1. I still love it here, it’s my passion. I’m not desperate but I’d certainly love to come back and be racing again. I’ve been talking to Fred quite frequently in the last few months."
Hülkenberg previously raced for the outfit, then named Sauber, in 2013.
Assessing his performance across the most recetn weekend, Hülkenberg added: "Actually, that lap didn't feel so good in Q3, but anyway, it was good enough.
"The race, it was good obviously, it's just hard when you don't know the car and you don't know anything. It's just coming new at you in the race.
"I guess I did okay. It's just a shame in that third stint with the blister otherwise it could have been better. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with my work."
