Adrian Sutil has been ordered to defend himself against charges of grievous bodily harm after the incident with Eric Lux in Shanghai, April 2011. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports Sutil at the end of January has two days of proceedings in court on charges of grievous bodily harm.
Sutil had previously admitted to having hit Lux, co-owner of Lotus Formula 1 team with a glass, but said it was an unfortunate "completely unintentional" injury. He wanted to pour only the contents of his glass in Lux's face but the sharp edges of broken glass cut on impact and left a wound in Lux's neck which required 24 stitches. An S-shaped scar is left on Lux's neck as evidence of the night after the Chinese grand prix.
