Sauber confirms Gutierrez as 2nd F1 driver
HINWIL, Switzerland (AP) — The Sauber team has confirmed Esteban Gutierrez of Mexico as its second driver for the 2014 Formula One season.
Gutierrez finished this season in 16th place in the drivers* standings as the best newcomer.
Team principal Monisha Kaltenborn says Sauber retained Gutierrez because “we believe he is a talented young racing driver” whose results often did not “fully reflect the performances.”
Gutierrez says his first season was a “steep learning curve” and he would do his best to improve.
The Mexican joins Adrian Sutil of Germany in Sauber*s lineup.
