Oct.10 (GMM) Team racer Adrian Sutil has dismissed as "just a rumour" suggestions that Force India is in talks with Mercedes-Benz.
We reported earlier this season that the Silverstone based squad may be considering a change of customer engine supplier, perhaps because Honda could be prepared to bundle a KERS system at a lower price than Ferrari for 2009 and beyond.Asked by the German press at Fuji Speedway about the latest reports now linking Force India with Mercedes, 25-year-old Sutil replied: "That is probably just a rumour."The German also expressed confidence that Force India, headed by the Indian billionaire Vijay Mallya, will go into next season with an unchanged driver lineup."I have been saying for most of the year that I have a contract for 2009," Sutil answered. "That is still the case, and I will honour it."
