2013-adrian-sutilAdrian Sutil says that he is happy to stay with Force India for next season; still Silverstone based squad not decided next year line-up.

The German missed from the sport respectively 2011 and 2012 following a conviction for an assault in China, and currently associating with Scot Paul di Resta.

“I do the best job I can and it’s the decision of the other teams if they want to take me. But I am also happy here. There aren’t so many teams that are better than Force India. ,” Sutil said in an interview with GP Week Magazine.

“Of course he [di Resta] is a bit younger than me and probably wants to get out of Force India. [But] I have no problem staying here. I’m happy to stay here. I have a great team boss – Vijay Mallya, he’s pushing the team, he wants it. Many drivers jump from one team to the other. I know what I have here and I need to have a good offer from a really good team to change that. So it’s normal.

“I’m already six years in F1. He is just in his third year in F1, so he is a bit more fresh, trying more to get into a top team. But let’s see. For me it’s more important to have clear offers than just rumours that I will go somewhere because that means nothing. At the moment nothing is decided. I wish him luck in his future career of course but it doesn’t affect me.”

“The car was really competitive [in the first ‘half’ of the season] and sometimes I think we [have] even had the chance of a podium,” he continued.

“Bahrain was probably the race where it could have happened and my race pace was the fastest over-all. Paul was very close to it. In Silverstone I was very close again. I think it’s just a matter of time now. If you come close so many times it will finally happen. We shouldn’t give up, and just try to push on a bit more,” he concluded.
