Adrian Sutil has revealed he would be reluctant to switch to the Renault team for 2011.

The 27-year-old, who has raced for the same Silverstone based team - as Spyker and Force India - since 2007, has been linked with the seat currently occupied by Vitaly Petrov.

But on a trip to India, German Sutil was quoted as saying: "Force India is the best team to be with currently."

Asked to expand, he would not rule out a move for 2011, but explained that Renault is not necessarily a better option than his current team.

"(It's) too early to say, nobody knows what Renault is going to do," he is quoted by the Indian PTI news agency.

"People are speculating. We (Force India) are very similar to Renault -- they are only one or two places in front of us."

It is believed Sutil's current contract includes an option for next season.

"At the moment, I don't see any reason to change my team," he said. "To find somewhere better than Force India is difficult at the moment.

"You have to go to the absolute top teams. Ferrari, McLaren and Red Bull ... all those teams have no place," added Sutil.
