Sutil: 'No truth' to Mercedes rumours

Adrian Sutil has rubbished wild speculation that he could be drafted in by Mercedes to replace Michael Schumacher in 2011. The German, who has scored 47 points this season with Force India, added though that he has yet to make a decision on where he will go next year.
“No, there is no truth in that,” Sutil told the Mail Online. “Michael is going to stay there for another year at least, and I think he has a three-year contract, so that is how it is. Of course it would be great to drive for Mercedes in the future, but I think now is just too early, and they are just rumours.
“People expected him to be where he ended three years ago, but that’s not how F1 is. It has changed and it is never easy to come back after three years. It’s not a winning car at the moment.
"You can make a reference to his team-mate [Nico Rosberg]. But he’s close and is getting better, so I suppose you could say it’s probably not been a bad comeback.
“[As for myself] I’m not sure at the moment [what my plans are for 2011], but it should happen pretty soon. I just want to make sure I do the right thing.
