Sutil manager says there are two options on the table for 2014
5 December, 2013
Adrian Sutil has two options to stay in Formula 1 beyond 2013, according to manager Manfred Zimmermann, suggesting that Force India remains an option, while Sauber appears the most likely destination for his client.
Zimmerman told Motorsport-Total, “We have two options, but there is still no decision. Of course, we strive to have a solution as quickly as possible, but this is not only in our hands.”
“Formula 1 at the moment is no longer predictable. There are so many imponderables and I’m not sure if next year all eleven teams from this year will still be at the start,” added Zimmerman.
Sutil who recently likened the 2013 Force India car to a carrot, was adamant in Brazil that he had a deal for 2014.
He declared at the time, “I have a contract and am looking forward to another year in Formula 1.”
But at an event recently he was less adamant, “It’s like with any contract that you have in life, it is not 100 percent sure.”
Reports suggest that McLaren reject Sergio Perez is most likely to partner Nico Hulkenberg at Force India next year. Perez will bring in a fair amount of money, through backing from Telmex, which the Silverstone based team would not shun.
Sutil, who himself has backing from Medion, is increasingly likely to move to Sauber who have yet to finalise their driver line-up for next season.
