No change at Force India

Force India insists that it will field an unchanged line-up at this weekend's Spanish GP, despite the furore surrounding Adrian Sutil.
Force India has moved to quell suggestions that the threat of legal action against its number one driver, Adrian Sutil, will see the German removed from its line-up with immediate effect.

Although Eric Lux, who claims that Sutil assaulted him in a Shanghai nightclub last month, has apparently called for the German to be stripped of his superlicence, Force India maintains that it is not about to take such drastic action.

"The Force India F1 Team is aware of the statements made by both its driver, Adrian Sutil, and Mr Eric Lux of Genii Capital, pertaining to events following the Chinese Grand Prix," a brief statement from the Silverstone equipe confirmed, "Although the team continues to monitor the situation, it remains fully committed to its driver line-up at this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix."

Sutil will thus line-up alongside rookie Paul di Resta for the fifth round of the season, but is sure to be the centre of a lot of the weekend's media attention in Barcelona.

Why take away his License for something that happened off track, I don't know all the facts about what happened but if he did glass someone put it through the criminal courts and let them decide his fate. Then if he loses his drive because he has become unemployable in the PR friendly world of F1 he's only got himself and his drunken actions to blame.
