Default Re: Force India 2013 Driver Line-up

Is Sutil's sponsor money coming from Medion ? Also he is tied to Benz because he is German, and Sutil had also had a benz engine pull that made him attractive. Or this is at least what is claimed. I dint ynderstand what benz's gain is. I can understand direstas ties to benz due to dtm.


Furthermore i dont see how such a ckntroversial figure can have backers!

An aggrieved sutil then hit a drunk lux in the neck with the glass .

Apparently everyone in F1 knows Lux was at fault but nobody wants to say a thing because he's a team owner.
That could explain why Sutil called Hamilton a coward for not testifying on his behalf. McLaren would have put a gag order on Lewis, because Lux is an owner.

Though SFI said that dropping Sutil had nothing to do with the incident, it is clear that it was. No team would drop a driver who had finished ninth, when the team had finished sixth.

It is clear that he has been taken on because of his 2011 performance.
