Sutil calm ahead of crucial career defining F1 test 21 February, 2013 163 Adrian Sutil Adrian Sutil insists he is not nervous ahead of his test with Force India on Thursday, which will see him return to a Formula 1 cockpit for the first time since the 2011 Brazilian GP. Billed by the media as a ‘shootout’ for the last race seat in 2013, German Sutil will drive the VJM06 at Barcelona a day before the other hot contender, Jules Bianchi, tests on Friday. “I’m pleased to finally be back on a formula one track,” Sutil, who bowed out of F1 after his assault conviction of 2011, is quoted by the DPA news agency. “It’s quite a while ago since Brazil 2011. The anticipation is there, but I’m not nervous or anything. “I don’t think I have to prove something to the team,” said Sutil, who spent his entire F1 career with the Silverstone based outfit. “I don’t know if this is really a fight for the (race) cockpit, so that’s why I’m not worried.” He’s not worried, but 30-year-old Sutil does know that Thursday is an important moment. “I think it’s my last chance to really have a future in formula one,” he acknowledged. “I think that with another year of waiting, the train will have departed. “Then I would have to think about something else. But I’m also experienced enough that I can only do what I always do, which is the best I can.” Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport claims that Sutil actually reached agreement about 2013 with Force India back in December, before the negotiations between the Ferrari-linked Jules Bianchi became serious. Sutil’s manager Manfred Zimmermann said: “We do not blame the team. They have always treated us fairly.” (GMM) Content on GrandPrix247.com by: staff & contributors, Reuters syndication, GMM service, Getty Images, Formula 1 teams, sponsors & organisations.
