Gutierrez comes with previous F1 experience having raced for Sauber in 2013 and 2014. During this time he scored six points. Unable to secure a race seat for 2015, he joined Scuderia Ferrari as a test driver.

Like Valtteri Bottas and Daniil Kvyat, he is a GP3 Series champion, having become champion in 2010. He moved up to GP2 in 2011, finishing third in the series the following year before moving into Formula One.

He will be the second Mexican on the grid in 2016, the other being Sergio Perez.
