Adrian Sutil has refused to comment on speculation about his F1 future after continued talk that he could be looking at options away from Force India for 2011.
Sutil has yet to agree a new deal to remain with the Silverstone-based team for another year on the back of talk that he was eyeing a possible move to Renault.
Renault has yet to commit to a second season for Russian rookie Vitaly Petrov while former champion Kimi Raikkonen has now ruled himself out of the running after attacking the team for using his name – and reported interest – for 'marketing' purposes [See separate story HERE
That leaves limited options for Renault if it did elect to dispense with Petrov at the season end, with Sutil one of the strongest candidates still on the market.
Sutil however refused to be drawn on the rumours at Suzuka, stating only that he will make a decision about his future sooner rather than later.
“No comment at the moment really,” he said when asked about the Renault rumours. “We will see. Very soon hopefully [my future will be decided].
“I don't want to wait too long until I make my decision but I will probably make it very soon.”
Should Sutil leave Force India, the current test driver Paul di Resta is the likely option to replace him in the line-up after impressing in his Friday practice runs this season.
