Adrian Sutil thankful for second chance to compete in F1

Formula One driver Adrian Sutil says he is thankful of being given a "second chance" to compete in the sport following his conviction for grievous bodily harm.

The German adds he is "confident" ahead of the new season after a year away from the track.

He will partner Paul di Resta for Force India and says he has "high expectations" for the season, when he will be trying to beat his 2011 finish of ninth.
