  Adrian Sutil/George Eads (CSI's Nick Stokes)
  Adrian Sutil   George Eads (CSI's Nick Stokes)    While watching the prelude to 2009's Melbourne Grand Prix, your correspondent was struck with a strong impression of the similarity between Force India nearly-also-ran Adrian Sutil and CSI's over-emotional Nick Stokes, played by George Eads.

Adrian Sutil is a driver whose career has been plagued by unfortunate timing: in what should have been his title-winning second season with ASM in EuroF3 in 2005, he was outshone by new team-mate Lewis Hamilton. When he should have been the new German driver replacing the (thankfully) outgoing Michael Schumacher in F1, he was outshone by compatriot Sebastian Vettel. And when he should have finished 4th in the wet at Monaco in 2008, he was outshone - oh, ok, punted off - by Kimi Raikkonen.

CSI Level 3 Nick Stokes it turns out hasn't had much of a problem with timing, and, actually, thinking about it, he doesn't really look much like Adrian Sutil either. Perhaps it was just the power of suggestion from the BBC playing "Who Are You?" at the time that got us going.

Still, it must come as some consultation to Adrian that he's been noticed by someone.
