Since Bruno Senna has been signed as the second Williams driver, Adrian Sutil is left with two options. That is according to his manager, who is attempting to find a new stable for the German driver after being left on the sidelines by Force India.
Replaced by F1 returnee Nico Hülkenberg, Sutil – like Rubens Barrichello – was chasing the Williams vacancy alongside Pastor Maldonado. However, his management’s strategy had changed even before Tuesday’s confirmation of Senna.
“The announcement of Bruno Senna as a Williams driver does not surprise us,” manager Manfred Zimmermann explained to Germany’s Motor-Total.com, adding that Sutil is now left with ‘two options’. “For us, that issue was already settled two weeks ago. The negotiations with Williams ended in mid-December due to differing ideas.”
Only one race seat remains unconfirmed on the 2012 F1 grid, which is that of HRT alongside Pedro de la Rosa; Vitantonio Liuzzi continues to reiterate that he has two years remaining on his contract but admits that the deal could be broken if the Spanish team finds a driver with more promising financial aspects. Sutil’s best alternative could now be a third driver position with a race seat promise for 2013 - similar to the strategy Hülkenberg adapted last year.
At the end of the month, Sutil will stand trial following an incident in a Shanghai nightclub after last year's Chinese Grand Prix.
