Nico Hulkenberg looked pretty glum as he sat in the press conference in Shanghai last weekend. You wouldn't have guessed he'd just won a championship for his country.
The A1GP World Cup of Motorsport was won by France in its first season. Now Team Germany has succeeded the French, and in a similarly dominant fashion.
But Nico wasn't happy. He'd only won the title with a pair of third places rather than the pair of wins we've come to expect in the past few months.
"I know I can't always win because that is impossible," he said to explain his dissatisfaction. But he didn't sound convincing.
