Jan 12th, 2013 (F1plus/R. Baillie).- Recently signed Sauber driver Adrian Sutil commented that his decision to move from Force India to Sauber is a ‘refreshing change’.

“It’s a refreshing change, I had a good time with Force India [for] many years” Sutil said on the Autosport stage at Autosport International on Sunday.

“Now for me I felt it was time for a change. New team, new regulations, new cars and very close to home.”

He commented that an advantage of joining Sauber was that their base in Hinwil, Switzerland was only an hour away from his home in Switzerland.

“It’s a one hour drive from where I live in Switzerland, it’s great and I feel very happy already. I can speak German which is an advantage, I can use my time a bit more efficiently so I’m looking forward to a successful future.”

The German, who finished 13th in the Drivers Championship last year, went on to talk about what he hopes to achieve during his sixth year driving in Formula One.

“I hope to start the season as Sauber finished it, that would be already quite a good success.” he said.

“Hopefully Sauber will be the team in front of Force India.”

When asked about fellow German Michael Schumacher’s condition, he spoke about his respect for what he achieved in his career and wished him the best.

“Such a shame, not the news you want to have during Christmas and New Year.” Sutil said.

“He’s a legend in the sport whatever he did, it was crazy what he achieved in his career so big respect for that.

“Wish him all the best, hopefully he will wake up soon and especially with no damage.”
