Despite his nightmare 2014 season to-date, Adrian Sutil is looking forward to this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix, which he hopes could allow the Sauber F1 Team to produce a good result.

The German hasn’t scored a point since last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix where – as a Force India driver – he finished tenth; his best finish in Sauber colours was the eleventh place he earned at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

The Hinwil-based based outfit is enduring its worst ever season since it became part of the Formula 1 circus since 1993; it is still to score a point and lies tenth in the Constructors’ Championship standings with Caterham.

Sutil showed a more competitive turn of pace at his home race last weekend. He ran on the fringes of the top-ten in Friday practice, however a technical issue in Saturday practice limited his on-track time and he was knocked out of contention in Q1 as a result. In the race, he battled through to again challenge for the Swiss team’s first top-ten finish, only to throw away his chances with a spin at the final corner.

Looking ahead to this weekend’s race, Sutil said he was ready for the team to have a good result.

“The Hungarian Grand Prix is a great event,” he said in the team’s preview of the race at the Hungaroring. “The track itself is quite short, but very challenging with many corners; it is not easy to put a perfect lap together. You need a lot of grip as there are several slow corners.

“Our chances are difficult to predict, but I am ready for a good result and hope for a great race.”
