Adrian Sutil gets 18-month suspended sentence

Published

on

Ex Force India driver Adrian Sutil has been found guilty of causing serious bodily injury and given a suspended jail sentence of 18 months. The German has been on trial in Munich for the last two days accused of causing GBH to Eric Lux – the CEO of Lotus owners Genii Capital. Having say sorry to Lux in court on Monday, Sutil has today been found guilty after wounding Lux with a champagne glass in the incident in a Shanghai nightclub last April.

In addition to the suspended sentence, Judge Christiane Thiemann also fined Sutil 200,000 Euros which will be paid to charities. Yesterday in court it emerged that Sutil had offered to support Lux’s African charity project following the incident, but that Lux was seeking a face-to-face apology.

Manfred Zimmermann, Adrian’s manager said that there would be no consequence on German’s F1 career, despite the judge having said the conviction was likely to have “serious professional consequences”. This (conviction) does not mean Adrian has no future in Formula One,” Zimmermann said. “There will be no consequences with the FIA and his driving ability has never suffered.”
