Sutil rubbishes exit rumours

Adrian Sutil has denied reports that he is about to be dropped by Sauber, insisting his seat is safe.


In the midst of a trying season for the Hinwill team, Sutil has not exactly shone.

Neither the German nor his team-mate Esteban Gutierrez have scored a single point but while Gutierrez is safe thanks to Telmex sponsorship, rumours have surfaced about Sutil's place at the team.

According to whispers in the paddock, reserve driver Giedo van der Garde is in line to replace him as he brings with him €15million in sponsorship backing.

Sutil, however, says his seat is safe.

The 31-year-old said: "I think half of my career they said 'Adrian is out'. I'm still here; it's my 120th grand prix. Any more questions?.

"I'll be here for much longer so sorry, but you'll have to live with my face.

"This is not the truth. You can ask me - I'll give you the right answer. It's from some person out there which is bored or whatever.

"I don't know their problems but we are good here and the team is holding together in these times.

"This is no problem and we will try and get out of this difficult situation and then I'm sure you can also write some good stuff or whatever."
