rob behave, if he got on the first plane out of there it proves nothing.. if id been stitched up (no pun) like he had id be on the first plane out....as im sure you would have..
if it was as serious as you seem to think then surely the police would have prosecuted.. they didnt..
its clear it was more about fat erics henchman trying to destroy a competitors career..

this is how speed.c0m saw the incident...
quote - It resulted after Lewis Hamilton and his party ,which included Sutil , were ushered by club management into a VIP area already occupied by Lux and his group.

CCTV footage viewed by SpEED.c0m last year showed Sutil sitting next to Hamilton, with Lux standing over them, and a discussion apparently taking place.

Lux then suddenly grabbed Sutil's left arm and tried to pull him out of the chair, and it was while Sutil tried to defend himself and push Lux away with his free right hand , in which he was still holding a glass , that the injury occurred.

Given that most people would regard what happened as an instinctive act of self defense ,albeit resulting one in an unfortunate injury , the sentence seems heavy handed at best. end quote

i guess it boils down to who you want to believe... the fat cat ceo or the racing driver..
it also explains why adrian wanted lulu to testify.

I don't know the full details of the case. I do know that Lewis wd not want to lie in court, especially after some incidents at Mclaren. What I read is that after the incident Lux had spoken with Sutil and the matter was seemingly resolved. Then he had taken advice and decided on legal action, a threat to involve another person in the room at the party. So read between the lines. Lux won a huge amount of damages. If you look him up on wiki and he's listed as an entrepreneur.

rob. you are getting a little sensitive. i was knocking lulu for praying. i said i was amused at the thought of him doing it. what is wrong with that?
and i pointed out that adrian did not ask lulu to lie for him. he wanted him to tell the truth, just as the german courts wanted.
if you are claiming that lulu refused to attend court as he knew that his "testimony" would go against sutil, then you are accusing him of perverting the course of justice. which , to me, is worse than lying!
stig has stated what speed said and showed, have you any evidence to the contrary?

ps edited to correct a slip! sorry stog, i mean stig!

Richard wouldn't that make him the true friend you wanted him to be? Or are you flopping. But you do believe that Sutil forgot he was holding a glass?

Rob you're trying your best to defend Lulu on this one which is nice of you, lets face it it's more than he'd do for anyone.

If Lulu thought Sooty was in the wrong he should have stood up and said so, instead he didn't go to court because he was "busy" and changed his phone number so that Sooty "his friend" couldn't contact him.

Much as I don't like Sooty I couldn't blame him for wanting Lulu to stick his prayer and his olive branch straight up his ar$e!

robbo, you aint replied to the speed dot com message - they've seen the footage we aint.. your thoughts on what they have to say and please, with utmost respect, put yourself in sutils shoes - how would you react in that scenario? could you respond directly without prejudice..

for what its worth. if i were sat down talking to my friends and someone came, stood over me and grabbed my arm to try to move me ...they'd be on their ar** quicker than you could say ''jenson is a better driver than you''.
Taipan, you are as always the voice of reason - i like sutil but i still agree with your comments.and i'd love it if force india whip the factory team in 2013.

Sutil slashed Lux on the Juggler vein. A very suspect spot for an accidental shove and he was unaware he was holding a glass. hmm hmm Not on the arm or hand or side. And then he fled the country as fast as he could. In addition he was sentenced to 18 months probation and a fine of 167,000, If you believe Lux initiated the arguement that would still hold little weigth to sutil being innocent. What I heard was Sutil made a very inapropiate remark about Lux's much younger date. Either way grabbing an arm and stabing someone are two very different things. And you jumping up an kicking butt would be just as stupid.
