Esteban Gutiérrez's Driver Bio

After 2 years racing with Lotus GP in the GP2 series Esteban has been trying to break into Formula One to compete with the best of them.

Since first testing an F1 car in 2009 with BMW Sauber, Esteban has been an observer and test driver to the Sauber team. With several appearances in the young driver tests. An impressive 3 wins, 7 podiums in GP2 and Mexican nationality Esteban fills the gap left by fellow Mexican driver Sergio Perez who leaves for McLaren.

Esteban also won the GP3 Series in his first season with ART GP in 2010 so jumping to conclusions of him being a ‘pay driver’ wouldn’t be wise.

After a tricky season with tough competition in the ‘rookie’ league Gutierrez held onto his seat to continue into 2014 with the Sauber F1 team.
