Force India 'best option' for Sutil for 2010

Adrian Sutil and Force India F1 move closer to inking a new deal for the 2010 FIA F1 World Championship.
Following news on Monday that Force India F1 has taken up its option on Adrian Sutil for 2010, his manager, Manfred Zimmerman, has confirmed that the Silverstone-based outfit is the 'best option' for next year.

Sutil had been linked to the likes of Toyota, Renault and even McLaren-Mercedes, but it appears he will now stick with Force India for a third season - what will actually be his fifth with the former Jordan team, having began his F1 career there as a test driver in 2006, albeit under one of its previous guises, namely Midland F1.

Speaking to the SID news agency, Zimmerman re-iterated that they want to make a decision within the next few weeks - echoing what Sutil said after Sunday's inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the 17th and final F1 round of the year.

"We have several possibilities [for 2010] and will make a decision in the next five to ten days," Zimmerman stated.

"Adrian has developed into an experienced F1 driver. Force India is a good option and probably the best one.

"They have made a very interesting offer."

More to follow as and when it develops...
