Adrian Sutil has been dropped by the Sauber Formula One team ahead of the 2015 season. With no more vacant seats in the single seater category, the former Sauber driver has stated he is interested in a drive in the World Endurance Championship.
Sutil WECIn an interview with AUTOSPORT, the German said “There are plenty of opportunities in categories that are really interesting – it doesn’t need to only be Formula One”. When asked about the WEC, Sutil went on to say that “Everyone is saying good words about it. The cars are quick and probably similar to Formula One.” He added “I definitely want to do the 24 Hours of Le Mans in my career, and I’m looking at certain Formula One drivers who did that step and are very happy”

With Sutil’s vast experience in top level Motorsport, starting 128 Grand Prix, he would be an asset to any WEC team, if it be in prototypes or GT’s. Even if it is just appearances at Spa and Le Mans it would keep the German racing in 2015. This would keep him active and maybe earn him another chance to compete in Formula One with the new Haas F1 team in 2016. When asked about the American team, Sutil said “It is an interesting project”
