@Dean Dean

Well I bet the team and sponsers wouldn't like their driver being denied entrance to a country hosting a race (very realistic)

@ Mark/ Taz

Apparently, Force India doesn't look upon Sutil as a sponsorship problem... if he was, they wouldn't be considering bringing him back now... and unless you were part of the crowd as a witness to what happened, his reason for his actions can be looked upon in differing ways. Most people have thrown things at others... that doesn't make you the worst villian walking the earth.

Deeznuts, He didn't just throw a tissue at someone he stuck a glass in the dude's neck!
As for the person who witnessed it, well there was Lulu but sadly he couldn't remember watching a man getting violently stabbed in the neck a few feet away from him!!

The team has an image to maintain.

Who knows it could have been prompted by Mercedes, or another shareholder even. Dr Mallya only own about 40 percent of the team and a certain Mr Sahara owns another huge chunk, and there's another minor party that owns the rest.

Maybe they never wanted to get rid of him all along, but they wanted to avoid the bad publicity. Now that it's been a year, perhaps they see the coast a clear for him. Not to mention he brings his own spending money AND can score points consistently.

@Dee - I don't think that he ever claimed self defense nor did he file an appeal when he was found guilty. He paid a 200,000 euro fine so he must have agreed with the charges. Hopefully if someone throws a broken glass at you or stabs you with it you will be as understanding. Like I said if he can bring in more money than they will lose it may be enticing for them. We already know that this team's owner has questionable ethics so no surprise there.

Tai, there were many witnesses. Some gave written statements backing Lux's side. Sutil wanted someone to back up a lie. Lewis wisely gave no comment. Or do you think he should have lied for Sutil? Lewis was busted once for telling a lie when the team directed him to. And that was for an idiot who couldn't stay on the track under yellow.

Rob, not quite right with your version of history there. Lulu allowed Sooty to think that he would be appearing as his star witness and a couple of days before the trial he firstly decided he was too busy to attend, then changed his phone number then claimed that he couldn't remember anything of the incident.

If he had learned from his previous brain farts wouldn't just telling the truth be the right thing to do? and if doing that screwed Sooty so be it. Instead he wriggled out of doing the right thing like a worm.

rob. i like your comment "sutil wanted someone to back up a lie". first of all, just maybe it could have been the truth.
secondly, does it not remind you of someone? maybe sooty knew that a person with experience could help him?
