SAO PAULO (AFP) - Adrian Sutil on Thursday declared he wanted immediate clear-the-air talks with his Sauber team just hours after they announced he is to be replaced next year.

The German driver told a news conference at Interlagos ahead of this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix that there were issues "to talk about."

It was understood that he had a contract for 2015.

But the team said they have signed Brazilian Felipe Nasr to partner Swede Marcus Ericsson.

"There are certain things to talk about definitely," he said.

"Yes, they 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 is just an announcement and from my side I need to do some talking to sort out the things."
