Sauber's chief designer Matt Morris believes that Nico Hulkenberg will be a big asset for the team in 2013.

Sauber have said that the team expects Nico Hulkenberg to be a huge asset during the 2013 Formula 1 season.

The German joins the Swiss team after a year racing for Force India, having previously had a spell at Williams.

Chief designer Matt Morris told Autosport: "I worked with Nico briefly at Williams and he's not only a fast driver, he's also a clever driver.

"That's both in terms of his general approach and also his ability to understanding engineering. He's a huge asset to the team."

The 25-year-old finished 11th in the drivers' championship last season.
