F1 star's R2m fine, dodges jail

2012-02-01 08:16

F1 CAREER STALLED: Adrian Sutil may have dodged a prison sentence but he still does not have a race seat for 2012.

MUNICH, Germany - Formula 1 driver Adrian Sutil has been fined €200 000 (R2-million) and sentenced to 18 months in jail here for assaulting international financier Eric Lux.

The jail sentence was suspended, though news reports did not say for what period.

Sutil was accused of attacking Lux, co-owner of the former Renault-Lotus (now Lotus) team, with a glass during a party in a Shanghai night club held to celebrate Lewis Hamilton’s victory at the 2011 GPix in April 2011.

Sutil apologised for the incident.


The nine-centimetre cut on Lux's neck required 24 stitches. Prosecutors offered a suspended sentence of one year in exchange for a guilty plea but Sutil refused.

He told the court Lux had threatened his race career despite Sutil's attempts to apologise.

Sutil is without a 2012 race seat, having been replaced by Nico Hulkenberg at Force India.
