Sutil facing court after Eric Lux assault - report

By on Friday, May 13, 2011

May 13 (GMM) One of the next pitstops made by Adrian Sutil could be in court, it is reported.

The German driver this week apologised after it emerged he injured Renault team owner Genii's chief executive Eric Lux during a private nightclub party for Lewis Hamilton's win in Shanghai.

Lux was wearing a bandage on his neck in Turkey last weekend amid rumours Sutil attacked him with a broken champagne glass.

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

The French-language website said Lux "has lodged a complaint and the German driver will have to explain himself in court".
