Lloyds broker Ellis Clowes & Company Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority Mallya won’t be presumptive in deciding Sutil fate FORCE India team principal Vijay Mallya has issued a lukewarm backing of his driver Adrian Sutil, saying that he won’t presume anything until action is taken against the German. Sutil could face a criminal complaint from Eric Lux, co-owner of the Renault F1 Team, for physical assault and grievous bodily harm after an alleged incident in a Shanghai nightclub last month. Lux vowed to lodge a criminal complaint against Sutil, but to date no complaint has been filed. Speaking on Thursday in Monte Carlo, Mallya said he would take appropriate action when a complaint was made, suggesting that things will remain as is until that happens. “As far as my position is concerned, there has been a press release issued which describes an incident,” said Mallya. “ We have not heard of any formal complaint being registered in any country for any sort of misconduct by Adrian. So it would be highly inappropriate for us to presume that he did something. It would be equally presumptuous that he would guilty of wrong- doing and take action against him. “So my position is very clear: if at all we receive a formal complaint or there is some form of formal legal enquiry in any country, we’ll take appropriate action at that time but we can’t be presumptive.” Crucially for Force India, Sutil’s personal sponsor Medion has vowed to stay with the team even if the German loses his seat. 11
