Sutil eyeing LeMans 24 Hours drive in 2015

Former Sauber F1 Team driver Adrian Sutil has confirmed that he is eyeing a drive at next year’s LeMans 24 Hours race.

The German lost his Formula One drive at the end of 2014 Formula One season following an extremely difficult year for the team which saw them fail to score a single point. Sutil returned to Formula One in 2013 with the Sahara Force India Formula One Team having sat out the 2012 Formula One season.

The German has expressed an interest in following former Formula One drivers Mark Webber, Anthony Davidson, Giancarlo Fisichella, Sebastian Buemi and Neal Jani in competing at the famous race.

Sahara Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg will also compete at the 2015 race after being granted permission by the Silverstone based outfit to join Porsche for the race as well as a race that will form the build-up to the 24 Hours race.

It remains unclear as to whether or not Sutil has a drive lined up for the race yet or not.
