Adrian Sutil begins a new chapter in his career this season as Sauber becomes only his second F1 team, having been with Force India since 2006, under its various names. Here’s what he said in a Q&A provided by the team today.

The start of the 2014 season is approaching. Is the adrenaline pumping yet?

“Yes, let’s say it’s getting there slowly. We are now at the end of January and we are close to the first test, I’m very excited to see how it will be, because no one really knows what the car is going to be like to drive on a circuit. There is a new era now with new engines and new cars. So I’m really excited and looking forward to stepping into a real new race car with a new team.”
