Six-year veteran in Formula One, Adrian Sutil, signed with Sauber on Friday for the 2014 season. He spent all of his six seasons with Force India before being replaced there following the 2013 season.

“After six good years driving for Force India, with a lot of highlights, it’s now time to embark on a new challenge," Sutil said. "I am determined to do my part in order to have a successful future together with the Sauber F1 Team. The long and successful tradition in motorsport, combined with an impressive factory and one of the best wind tunnels in F1, have been fascinating me for a long time. Thank you to Peter Sauber and Monisha Kaltenborn for your trust in me.”

Sutil has started all 109 Grand Prix events over the past six seasons but has never scored a podium finish. In 2010 Sutil scored a career best 47 points and finished tenth in the driver standings. He followed that up in 2011 by scoring 42 points and finished ninth in the points. The 2013 season saw Sutil accumulate 29 points and finish 13th in points.

“We are pleased that we were able to sign Adrian, particularly as we have been wanting to work together with him for a while," Sauber team principal Monisha Kaltenborn said. “Adrian had already visited the factory at the end of September to have a look at the infrastructure. Adrian is not only very fast, but also brings a lot of experience, which is very important looking at the new regulations for next year. We welcome Adrian to the Sauber F1 Team and look forward to a successful collaboration.”
 
Sauber will announce their second driver for 2014 at a later date.
