Esteban Gutierrez to continue driving for Sauber in 2014

London, Dec 22 : Formula One team Sauber has confirmed that young Mexican driver Esteban Gutierrez will continue to drive for them in 2014 and will partner Adrian Sutil who joined the team as Nico Hulkenberg's replacement last week.

With the German team finalising their driver line up, any hopes Russian teenager Sergey Sirotkin had of making a debut in Formula One are dashed - but he will take his place as their official test driver.

According to the Mirror, Gutierrez expressed his happiness at being able to drive for Sauber, adding that he was able to improve continuously during the steep learning curve last season by working closely with the team.

Gutierrez further said that it would be his fourth year with the team, the second as a racing driver, for which he feels comfortable in taking the next step, adding that as the technical challenges in 2014 will be massive, it will be even more important to know well the people that he would be working with.

Gutierrez scored six points in his first season in the sport, enough to give him the honour of the highest-scoring rookie on the grid, the report added.
