Sutil hoping for Force India news in the next couple of weeks

Adrian Sutil is expecting to know within weeks if he has a race seat at Force India next year. Amid reports team boss Vijay Mallya has already signed Nico Hulkenberg to replace him next year, German Sutil hit out at the scheduled plans to only announce the 2012 lineup in mid December.

“I can’t wait until December,” said the 28-year-old early this week.

Mallya responded on Friday: “If he wants an early decision I will give (it to) him.”

Sutil explained to F1’s official website: “The announcement can be done in December, but as a driver I need a decision before that as I want to secure my future in Formula One. That is why I am trying to get a decision in the next two to three weeks, to make sure that I am also racing in Formula One in 2012.”
