2011-05-13 09:32

One of the next pit stops to be made by Adrian Sutil could be in court for attacking a man with a Champagne glass.

The Force India driver apologised after it emerged that he injured Renault team owner Genii's chief executive Eric Lux in China. Sutil's brawl with Lux occured at a night club party in celebration of Lewis Hamilton's win in Shanghai.

Lux was wearing a bandage on his neck during the Turkish F1 GP last Sunday amid rumours that Sutil attacked him with a broken Champagne glass.

COMPLAINT LODGED

It has also been rumoured that Lux required a dozen stitches, that he has suffered hearing problems since the incident, and that Force India driver Sutil may have been drunk.

Sport24.com reports that said Lux had lodged a complaint and that Sutil will have to explain himself in court.
