Sutil interested in WEC and Haas F1
29 December 2014 – Adrian Sutil says he could switch to the World Endurance Championship next year and has also expressed an interest in the fledging Haas F1 Team, due to debut in 2016.
Sutil switched from Force India to Sauber for 2014, but was dropped after the Swiss squad opted for an all-new line-up, drafting in former Caterham pilot Marcus Ericsson and GP2 racer Felipe Nasr.
Sutil, who previously spent a year on the sidelines in 2012, insists he is relaxed about the situation.
"There are plenty of opportunities - it does not need to only be Formula 1," he told Autosport.
"I have had my normal plan disrupted so I have to look at several categories. I am very open and if I do not drive next year, I am still a happy man.
"Maybe the year after Haas is coming to Formula 1, and this is an interesting project. The WEC could [also] be an interesting project.
"Everyone is saying good words about it, and that is how I feel about it. The cars are quick and probably similar to Formula 1."
"I definitely want to do the 24 Hours of Le Mans in my career, and I am looking at certain Formula 1 drivers who did that step and are very happy," he added.
Sutil made his F1 debut back in 2007 and since then has competed in over 100 races, scoring 124 points. His best finish came in 2009, when he was fourth in the Italian Grand Prix with Force India.
