Sutil doesn't regret Sauber move

Sutil doesn't regret Sauber move

Even though he has yet to get off the mark this season, Adrian Sutil does not regret his decision to swap to Sauber.

The German driver left Force India at the end of 2013 and moved to Sauber, who outscored Force India in the latter stages of last year's Championship.

This year, though, it has been a very different story.

While Force India have scored 77 points and a podium finish, Sauber have yet to score even one point.

But despite their contrasting fortunes, Sutil says he has no regrets.

"Well I took my decision, I said 'I've had wonderful years with Force India and I needed a change' and I went to Sauber," he told ESPNF1.

"This chapter is done for me and I'm happy to see them being successful. I did a lot of work, maybe this is what they have right now.

"I'm not thinking back 'what a shame I'm not there', no. It's ok, they have a good result there and I'm happy for them. Life goes on in a new team with a new challenge."

The 31-year-old added: "I have no regrets but of course I am motivated to get out of this situation we are in right now and make the same with this team with what Force India are doing right now.

"In Montreal we had a smooth weekend which was important; we had some difficulties in the first ones where little things always went wrong.

"The current situation is not easy which is why it's important to not make mistakes and maximise what we have."
