Sutil: I’ve done everything I can do to get my comeback

Adrian Sutil returned to the Formula 1 for the first time since 2011 on Thursday, Sutil and current Force India reserve driver Jules Bianchi are main competitors for the last race seat on the starting grid of this season.

Freshly Force India says that no hurry to name their second driver even though the season starts in Australia Grand Prix on next month second weekend.

Today the German successively completed 78 laps and set eighth fastest lap-time for Force India. Following the test he admitted that commercial factors are likely to be playing a role in the delay.

Autosport reported that, when asked if this week’s test was a shootout, Sutil told reporters: “No, they know me better than any other team here.

“I spent six years with that team and they know my performance. I think it was obvious today that I could show I am still quick and that was very important. I don’t know who has the better chance. I’ve done everything I can do to get my comeback and now it’s up to them to decide.”

“If you think about it, it has to be something else [other than talent] otherwise they would have confirmed a driver in plenty of time for the first test. It can’t take long anymore – in three weeks there is a race in Melbourne so it’s about time to confirm the drivers. The German added.

“There is some business behind it, I don’t really know. For me the most important thing was to deliver a performance here. I have done my part. I did a good day, that was very important for me so I can sleep without any worries.”
