Sutil: No problem after Di Resta incident

Sutil: No problem after Di Resta incident

Adrian Sutil is holding no grudges following his incident with Force India team-mate Paul di Resta in China.

The duo made contact on the opening lap at Shanghai, which resulted in Di Resta losing several places and eventually finishing P8. Deputy team principal Bob Fernley admitted afterwards that they will "sit them down" to discuss the incident.

The clear-the-air talks have clearly had the desired effect as Sutil, who was forced to retire after Esteban Gutierrez made contact with him on lap five, has already moved on.

"The race was very short. I had a little incident with Paul early on, but we spoke about it, and there's no problem," he said.

"For the next few laps I was catching up the cars in front and then Gutierrez just missed his braking point and crashed into my rear. It's frustrating, but what can you do? He will learn so there are no hard feelings. Hopefully he will not do it again."

Having missed out on some points in China, Sutil heads to Bahrain this weekend hoping for a better race.

"It's never easy, but I think we can learn quite a lot out of the race," he said. "The pace was not so good at the beginning, but much better at the end. We have to understand why.

"Paul got some good points for the team, but we lost some pace this weekend in general, and there were quite a few quick cars who didn't finish the race. So we have to get a move on in Bahrain! It should be better for us there."
