Adrian Sutil says he needs to have talks with Sauber about his position at the team next year after it announced two new drivers for 2015.

In the last week Sauber has confirmed Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr as its two race drivers for next season, leaving Sutil and team-mate Esteban Gutierrez out in the cold. Throughout the year Sutil has insisted he has a contract for 2015 and was expecting to stay at Sauber.

Now he admits he needs clarification on his position and even suggested the team might not be racing next year.

"There are certain things to talk about, definitely yes," Sutil said. "We have confirmed two drivers but it doesn't mean the drivers are going to drive and it doesn't mean the team is going to drive. So there is no real change from last weekend to this weekend. It's just an announcement and now, of course, in my situation I need to do some talking to sort out the things."

Asked if he was confident of remaining in F1 next year, Sutil added: "At the moment, I don't know. Maybe. Formula One can be unpredictable. As I said, we have a few things to talk about first and the team has to comment on the rest.

"I'm not frustrated. It's just how it is in Formula One and has been for many years. It's a little bit a different business, so that's all I can say right now. I look forward to racing my race and that's it."
