Sutil handed 18-month suspended sentence

Discussion in 'Formula 1' started by Scott Webber, Jan 31, 2012.

  1. Adrian Sutil has today been found guilty of bodily harm against Lotus co-owner Eric Lux and has been handed an 18-month suspended sentence.

    He has also been ordered to pay a 200,000 euro (£167,224, $264,092) fine.

    Following last year's Chinese Grand-Prix, it arose that Sutil had attacked the Lotus co-owner in a nightclub with a champagne glass, today he was convicted of the incident in Munich.

    Sutil, who doesn't have a drive for 2012 after being let-go by Force India, has said that he never intended to hurt Lux and that he had done his best to demise the situation in the months following.

    Lux suggested to the court that the German had never even apologised to him face-to-face and this was what he was looking for to close the matter.

    Silly fight that totally got out of hand. Think Sutils career if F1 is now over

    Any confirmation on if he's still banned from China or not?
    No team will want a driver that can't go to one of the races.
  4. his career is over, he won't be back in F1 again, he's also taking a very long break from everything now aswell.
