Sutil not losing his seat amid scandal - manager


Adrian Sutil on Thursday said he is concentrating on the Spanish Grand Prix rather than worrying it might be one of his last in Formula One.

The German is embroiled in a scandal, with Renault co-owner Eric Lux vowing to press criminal charges after he was cut with a broken glass following the recent Chinese Grand Prix.

"Of course it's a bit difficult at the moment," Sutil told a swarm of reporters in Barcelona, according to the German press.

"But when I'm in the car, the world will be in order. I look forward to it," he said.

Sutil, 28, was clearly not in the mood to talk about the nightclub incident, nor the fact Force India has confirmed his seat only for this weekend.

"I want to concentrate on Formula One," he insisted.

To date there is no official indictment

His manager Manfred Zimmermann said: "To date there is no official indictment, only the press release about the intention (of Lux)."

Asked about Force India's tenuous backing, he added: "The team has the right to monitor the situation, that is normal.

"But we believe that Adrian will also be in the cockpit for all the remaining races," said Zimmermann.
