Esteban Gutiérrez

IndyCar newcomer & ex-F1 star

Ex-Formula 1 driver and now IndyCar rookie Esteban Gutiérrez is the latest online driving instructor for SAFEisFAST.com.

The 25-year-old driver races in IndyCar for Dale Coyne Racing having previously enjoyed stints with Sauber, Ferrari and Haas in F1. Gutiérrez has also competed in Formula E, racing for Techeetah during the 2016/17 season.

After rising through the karting ranks back home in Mexico, Gutiérrez’s car-racing career began in the Formula BMW USA series. He went on to compete in the Formula 3 Euro Series and GP3, before two seasons in GP2 were enough to convince Sauber to give Gutiérrez a shot at F1 for 2013, a move that yielded six points and one fastest lap. Ferrari appointed Gutiérrez as their test driver for 2015, ahead of a season with Haas in 2016.

A brief spell in Formula E followed, before signing for Dale Coyne Racing half-way through the 2017 IndyCar season, replacing the injured Sebastien Bourdais. To date, Gutiérrez has 57 points from his first four races.
