Nico Hulkenberg had a seat fitting for Sauber's new C32 chassis this week, beginning his transition phase from Force India.
Hulkenberg, who has two Formula 1 seasons under his belt, met with engineers and sat in a base tub at the outfit's Hinwil factory. The 25-year-old will race alongside Esteban Gutierrez next season, the Mexican graduating from feeder series GP2.
Sauber has already announced that its 2013 car will be ready in time for the opening pre-season test at the Circuito de Jerez, taking place from February 5-8.
