Adrian Sutil says he and Force India teammate Vitantonio Liuzzi have put their falling out in Brazil behind them.
Each accused the other of getting in his way during the first segment of qualifying at Interlagos, from which Sutil was eliminated. Liuzzi only went on to qualify one place better in 18th. But Sutil says they have discussed the incident and come to Abu Dhabi with no problems between them.
"It's better," he said. "When you work in a team, sometimes you have problems with a teammate, sometimes you have problems or arguments with some other people, it's normal.
"In qualifying [at Interlagos] we had a few problems, that's obvious. But nothing to be worried about; we are OK, we talked to each other, we don't hate each other – that's the most important thing."
Sutil also says he expects to remain with Force India next season, and is looking forward to the inaugural Indian Grand Prix.
"I can probably see my future here for next year, it's all going in this direction at the moment," he said. "[The Indian GP] will be amazing, absolutely. If it's with this team it will be even better, a very special weekend for Force India – their first home grand prix."
