Video footage exists of Sutil/Lux brawl
19 May, 2011
May 19 (GMM) A video is said to exist depicting the Shanghai nightclub brawl involving Adrian Sutil and Eric Lux, according to the Swiss newspaper Blick.
The internal security camera footage at the M1nt nightclub in Shanghai could prove decisive in Force India driver Sutil’s legal defence as Renault co-owner Lux pushes criminal charges.
Sutil, whose entire Formula 1 career could hang on the outcome of the saga, insists he unintentionally cut Lux’s neck with a broken glass during a post-race party attended also by Sutil’s close friend Lewis Hamilton.
Lux was wearing a bandage in Istanbul two weeks ago to cover more than a dozen stiches, and Bernie Ecclestone told Blick: “The victim was damn lucky.”
