Hello and welcome to F1Minute for the 16th May 2011.
For the past few weeks there have been rumours that an altercation occurred in China - a fight between Adrian Sutil and Eric Lux, a Genii Capital partner. It wasn’t really clear what had gone on. We knew that the pair had been in a club, celebrating after the race. Lux exited the club with an injury to his neck. At the time, all Sutil would say was that it was an unintentional incident and not related to his professional career.
Today, Eric Lux has released a statement saying: “In the view of recent events... Mr Eric Lux has decided to file a criminal complaint against Mr Adrian Sutil for physical assault and grievous bodily harm. As soon as the complaint is registered, the FIA and the team Force India will be notified. Furthermore, please note that Mr Eric Lux does not exclude commencing an action against any other persons involved in this matter.”
From this, we can gather that it very much will relate to Sutil’s professional career, and that there may have been others involved.
