Sutil withdraws appeal over Chinese nightclub incident



Adrian Sutil now looking the ways for come-back to Formula 1, recently Sutil has withdrawn his appeal over the ruling handed out to him following a nightclub incident with Genii Capital’s Eric Lux in 2011, the latter having been injured by a glass through the 2011 Chinese GP party event.

Former Force India driver was handed a suspended 18-month jail term and €200,000 fine. Sutil’s lawyers straight away filed an appeal alongside the Munich court’s penalty, prompting the trial to do the same.

But the German Bild reports that Sutil has now withdrawn that appeal, Bild adding that the prosecution followed suit.

“I am very happy that I have been able to express myself to Eric Lux and don’t have to go to court again. I don’t want to have to go through another year like the one past. The topic is finished and I want to resume doing what I do best as quickly as possible – racing in formula one.”

The German news paper said Sutil’s FIA super-license is not affected by his criminal conviction or his accepting of the sentence.

“We are very pleased that Eric Lux and Adrian have spoken and the topic is now closed,” said his manager Manfred Zimmermann. “From now on we will concentrate only on the sport and do everything to get Adrian back in Formula One.”
