The future of the 28-year-old German has been the subject of speculation after his current employers Force India stalled on naming their driver line-up for next season.
Sutil is in the frame to stay on at Force India, who he first joined in 2007 when the team was owned by Spyker, although he faces competition from 2011 team-mate Paul Di Resta and test driver Nico Hulkenberg.
Moves to Williams and Lotus have also been touted, but just one seat remains at each of those outfits after the former confirmed Pastor Maldonado would stay on for a second year and the latter announced the signing of 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen.
Sutil did his reputation the power of good with a fine drive to sixth place at the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix last weekend, a result which followed a string of other impressive performances, and he admits he is relaxed about his prospects.
"To be honest, I delivered great performances at my last 10 races," Sutil told formula1.com. "For sure, these results make things easier for me and my manager to sort out the future."
Asked whether he was surprised to be left waiting to hear about where he will drive in 2012, he said: "Yes. But that's life in Formula One and you have to deal with it. But it doesn't look too bad for 2012 - let's see what will happen.
"Right now we do have more than one option and we are trying to put the best package together for next year. Hopefully we will have a decision within the next two weeks."
Sutil insists Raikkonen's move to Lotus - who raced as Renault in 2011 - will not affect his chances of joining the team, and would welcome the chance to test himself against a driver of the Finn's calibre.
"[It has] no consequences for me at all," said Sutil, who scored 42 points as Force India finished sixth in the constructors' championship last season.
"I always said I'm happy to have the best team-mate I can get, as this is the only chance to show how good you are - and Kimi would be a great and very strong team-mate."
