Sutil has seat fitting at Sauber factory
18 December, 2013
A mere week after his signing Adrian Sutil got his first taste of his new ‘company car’ when he visited Sauber headquarters in Hinwil for a seat fitting in the new C33 he will drive for the team in 2014.
Sauber published the photo on Twitter with the caption: “Look who we found getting comfortable in his seat.”
The identity of the team’s second driver is yet to be announced, although Esteban Gutierrez appears to have a good chance of remaining with the team for a second year.
Nico Hulkenberg, who drove for Sauber in 2013, has moved on to Force India in what has ended up being a driver swap between the two teams.
At the time of the announcement Sutil said, ”I am determined to do my part in order to have a successful future together with the Sauber F1 Team. [Their] long and successful tradition in motorsport, combined with an impressive factory and one of the best wind tunnels in F1, have been fascinating me for a long time.”
Sutil lives in Oensingen (Switzerland) which is an hour’s drive to Hinwil. (GP247)
