Sutil heartbroken after missing points


Adrian Sutil of Force India crashed at Shanghai, China when he was running sixth with five more laps to go.  As in Monaco last year he was followed by reigning WDC but this time he was undone by himself!

Sutil started with light fuel but went for more fuel in the early laps as the race started behind Safety car.  More fuel meant effectively a one stop strategy when racing resumed. It paid dividends when he rose to sixth by lap 49.

‘We knew it would have been tight on the tyres, but the grip in the corners was enough to stay in a good position, but with the aquaplaning on the straights it was sometimes hard to keep it on the circuit. You never knew what was going to happen because the car went to the left or the right. With six laps to go I hit another patch of water and ended up in the wall. It was very disappointing.’ – Sutil

Sutil finished ninth in Australian GP and seventeenth in Malaysian GP.
