Muscle Milk Pickett Racing has pulled the plug on its TUDOR United SportsCar Championship program, with immediate effect.

The two-time ALMS P1 champions previously announced that it would skip the Long Beach and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca rounds in order to focus on further development of its Oreca 03 Nissan package. However, a team representative confirmed to Sportscar365 on Thursday that they will not take part in any further races this year. No reason for the withdrawal has been given.

Adrian Sutil continues to be frustrated by Sauber’s form, but the German believes there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and that the Swiss car will improve.

Sutil has been suffering relative to his team mate because his extra bodyweight pushes the car/driver combination substantially over the limit.

Nico Rosberg says he’s learned lessons from the Bahrain GP, where he fought closely with team mate Lewis Hamilton, but ultimately lost out in their wheel-to-wheel fight.

“I’ve reviewed Bahrain, and just tried to learn from it, picked out the good things from it, what can I do better,” said Rosberg. “The key lesson from Bahrain – for sure I learned about battling, definitely a lot about that, because it’s not so common, to have many corner battles and things like that. That was very good experience, I definitely picked up many things there.”
