(Sauber F1 Team)
Adrian Sutil’s manager has confirmed that he is working with the Sauber F1 Team to find a way ‘to solve the problem’. Sutil and former team mate Esteban Gutierrez were replaced at the Hinwil based outfit by Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr.
Esteban Gutierrez was signed by Scuderia Ferrari as their official test and reserve driver. Sutil and Gutierrez weren’t the only drivers at odds with the Sauber F1 Team as Giedo Van Der Garde laid claim to one of the seats saying that he had an agreement in place with the team to race for them in 2015.
Despite winning a case in an Australian court, Van Der Garde gave up all legal right to the seat ‘for the good of the team.’
Although Van Der Garde has now given up on driving in Formula One, Adrian Sutil has not and was signed by Williams Martini Racing last month as their official reserve driver ironically taking the role vacated by Felipe Nasr who has joined the Sauber F1 Team.
