Haas F1 team completes driver line-up with Gutierrez
As it was expected, Esteban Gutierrez returns to Formula 1 as a driver of the new Haas team.
After securing Romain Grosjean’s services for 2016, Haas team confirmed former Sauber driver as their new member. The 24 years old Mexican, Ferrari’s reserve driver in 2015, was front runner for the empty seat in American team and he gets another opportunity to test himself in Formula 1.
“This is an excellent opportunity that builds on my time with Ferrari and I will make the most of it. To have a race seat in a competitive car with Ferrari power is very special, and I appreciate the faith he has in me. I trust we’ll be able to achieve great things together,” said Gutierrez.
This deal means Manor are now the only team with likely vacancies for 2016, so we can expect a huge battle for those places as there are many candidates.
