Hulkenberg said: "I don't really care about the driver rumours about next season, because I don't see that it directly affects me.
"My future at Renault is long-term," the German wrote in his latest Sport1 column. "It is fun to work on the development of the team.
"Of course I have noticed that Alonso and Kubica are mentioned as possible new drivers for our team. For Robert, a comeback would definitely be good for him and the whole sport.
"And Fernando would of course be a real heavyweight for our team and I don't mind that at all. On the contrary, he would be a good measure for me and a great challenge.
"I do not think I would need to hide behind him," Hulkenberg insisted.
