Harangued Sutil 'concentrating on the racing'

Zimmermann acknowledged that his driver has appointed his own lawyers – with previous reports indicating that Sutil had made contact with Lorenz Erni, who two years ago famously defended filmmaker Roman Polanski over sexual assault charges.

It has also been revealed that McLaren-Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton – who was similarly present in the nightclub as he celebrated his Chinese Grand Prix victory, his first of the F1 2011 campaign – could be summoned by the prosecution to give evidence in an eventual trial. The Briton would concede only that 'I've been advised not to say anything'.

The last serving F1 driver to run into trouble with the law was Bertrand Gachot, who was sent to jail for two months back in 1991 for having sprayed CS gas in the face of a London taxi driver – a moment of madness that to all intents and purposes ended the Belgian's top flight career...and helped to launch that of a certain Michael Schumacher.
