Sutil set for Force India return

27 February 2013 21:45

Formula One rookie Jules Bianchi's manager says his driver has missed out on becoming Force India's secondary driver this season.

Bianchi's manager, Nicolas Todt, believes Adrian Sutil has won out over his client after the 30-year-old German vied with Bianchi to join Paul di Resta as Force India's drivers for 2013.

Sutil started with the Spyker team in 2007 before it was re-branded as Force India for 2008.

He continued to drive with the team until 2011 but was not offered a driving position last year as Nico Hulkenberg and di Resta became the team's preferred driving options.

Sutil's omission came on the back of the driver being convicted for assaulting the co-owner of the Lotus team, Eric Lux, in a Shanghai bar following the 2011 Chinese Grand Prix.

Di Resta is happy to line up alongside Sutil, even though Force India test driver Bianchi did achieve good results during recent testing in Jerez.

"It's not my decision and it's not something I am thinking about," di Resta told Eurosport.

"I know both (Sutil and Bianchi) very well. They're both good people, and they've both been part of the team for a long time.

"It's not affecting me in either way, shape or form. I'm working with my team of guys, I'm working with the same people that I've worked with over the years and we're developing this car to get the best out of it."
