Seat fitting hints at Sutil test

Adrian Sutil's candidature for the second Force India ride takes a step forward with seat fitting ahead of Barcelona test.
Adrian Sutil is expected to become the second Force India hopeful to run with the team in pre-season testing, following reports of a seat fitting at the its Silverstone base.

The German, who lost out to fellow countryman Nico Hulkenberg in the 'three into two' scenario that preceded the 2012 campaign, has emerged from his assault case to become a viable option for the squad, which already has 2011 team-mate Paul di Resta confirmed for the coming year. Sutil is just one of a number of options open to Force India, with Jules Bianchi – who tested at Jerez last week – and HRT refugee Narain Karthikeyan though to be the other main contenders.

"Adrian has had a seat fitting with the team this week," a team spokesperson told Autosport magazine, "At this stage, the test driving schedule for the Barcelona test is not finalised but there is a possibility Adrian could be involved.”

Force India is expected to reveal its Barcelona test line-up on Monday, a day ahead of the four-day session getting underway at the Circuit de Catalunya.

its a shame most people can't see past the sensationalism. Go and watch any interview with Sutil and even the video of him running like a pansy on youtube then tell me that you still think he is a violent thug. Imagine the drama of both Sutil and his ex-friend Hamilton battling it out in equally matched cars, I for one would rather see that than another new face on an already rookie filled grid.
