Adrian Sutil's manager has dismissed speculation linking the Force India F1 star to Williams in 2012 as 'nonsense' - stressing that 'at this time, there is no action talking to other teams'.

The German - out-of-contract at his current employer at the end of this season - is one of a number of drivers to have been mentioned in connection with Williams in recent weeks, and is reported to have held discussions with the former multiple world champions. The Grove-based outfit is known to be struggling for finances - making Sutil's chief sponsor Medion an attractive sweetener to a deal. Manfred Zimmermann, however, has been quick to downplay such rumours.

"Our first choice for 2012 is Force India," he told the Daily Mail, describing the Williams link as mere 'nonsense'. "At this time, there is no action talking to other teams. There is no need to bring sponsors or money to a team for Adrian - last year and this year, he is fighting for a top ten result in the world championship. Medion make their decision after we have signed a contract. If there is a nice offer, they become a sponsor of the team; if not, they will not."

Sutil presently sits twelfth in the F1 2011 drivers' standings, twelve points clear of rookie team-mate Paul di Resta and with a best finish of sixth place to his name from the opening 13 outings. Having initially come under pressure after being outpaced by the Scot, the 28-year-old has of late got back on terms.

He has asserted that his number one priority is to remain with the Silverstone-based squad for a fifth consecutive campaign [see separate story - click here]. Sutil has raced for no other team during his top flight career, having started out with FIF1's predecessor Midland and subsequently Spyker.
