Sutil joins Albers at Spyker

The Spyker F1 team has signed Adrian Sutil to partner Christijan Albers in the 2007 FIA F1 World Championship. The 23-year-old Munish driver did the Friday test driving for the team at three races this year while winning the Japanese F3 Championship for the Tom's Toyota team.

In 2005 Adrian was runner-up to Champion and ASM team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the European F3 series.

Until he was 14 Sutil was set to join his Uruguayan-born father into a musical career as a concert pianist but after he discovered karting it took over.
