A mere week after his signing Adrian Sutil got his first taste of his new ‘company car’ when he visited Sauber headquarters in Hinwil for a seat fitting in the new C33 he will drive for the team in 2014.

Sauber published the photo on Twitter with the caption: “Look who we found getting comfortable in his seat.”

The identity of the team’s second driver is yet to be announced, although Esteban Gutierrez appears to have a good chance of remaining with the team for a second year.

Nico Hulkenberg, who drove for Sauber in 2013, has moved on to Force India in what has ended up being a driver swap between the two teams.

At the time of the announcement Sutil said,  “I am determined to do my part in order to have a successful future together with the Sauber F1 Team. [Their] long and successful tradition in motorsport, combined with an impressive factory and one of the best wind tunnels in F1, have been fascinating me for a long time.”

Sutil lives in Oensingen (Switzerland) which is an hour’s drive to Hinwil. (GP247)

    Adrian Sutil will deliver at Sauber I have no doubt about that.He’s quick & Sauber can be a Force.The only thing that worries me is that they have lost some great technical people already.
    For me Sauber’s biggest lost was Nico Hulkenberg to Force India and even a bigger shame that McLaren or Ferrari did not sign him to race for them.
