Esteban Gutiérrez: “Today we were able to do a lot of laps, which is very positive. Considering the circumstances, it is very important to put in this mileage. We found some issues in the systems, which is something to work on and part of the process. Obviously at this stage I was not able to push. Before we can take it to the limit our priority is reliability. We had some issues with the brakeing system, where it was better to go easy in the braking zones, figure out how the system reacts, get mileage and sort it out.”

What comes next This was the final day of testing in Jerez for Esteban Gutiérrez. Tomorrow and Friday Adrian Sutil will be driving the Sauber C33-Ferrari.
