I have heard that the hypervisor itself is realized as device driver.
Is this right and can you say something about this?

The hypervisor is an architecturally separate layer of the system. You can find a good architectural diagram in the WinHEC deck, “Hypervisor, Virtualization Stack, and Device Virtualization Architectures”
In Viridian v1, we load the Hv as part of the system boot from an early-load device driver, but it is not executed like a device driver and the Hv runs in its own context below all partitions.
