Adrian Sutil has pledged his commitment to Formula One, but he admits he is very eager to move up the grid as soon as possible.

The 26-year-old entered the sport with Force India's struggling predecessor Spyker in 2007, collecting just a single point from his 40 races so far.

Sutil and his colleagues at the Silverstone squad insist they are making steady progress away from the grid's tail end, but the German acknowledges that he is unlikely to achieve his main ambition with Force India.

When asked by the broadcaster RTL when he hopes to sit in a more competitive car, he answered: "As fast as possible.

"With Force India it will surely be difficult to be fighting for the world championship," admitted Sutil.

However, after 2005 and 2006 world champion Fernando Alonso at Monaco said he would quit F1 rather than race for a small team, Sutil pledged his commitment to the premier open-wheeler category.

"I have never considered going from F1 to another series, even if I could again be winning," he insisted.
