Mallya waits on Sutil charges

Force India team principal Vijay Mallya has not ruled out team action is Adrian Sutil is charged and convicted of assault following an incident with Genii Capital's Eric Lux in a Shanghai nightclub after the Chinese GP.

Speaking in Monaco, Mallya said: "Adrian has a contract but contracts do not supersede misconduct. But, unless I believe that there has been misconduct, the contact will prevail.

"There's a due process of law. If Adrian is to be charged, let him be charged. If and when he is charged, I will assess the situation."
