Sauber finalised its line-up for the 2013 season with Esteban Gutierrez confirmed as the team's second race driver. The Mexican will be driving alongside Nico Hulkenberg in his debut Formula 1 season. Gutierrez began his career in karting. He raced in the Formula BMW USA series in 2007, where he finished the runner-up, and then went on to win the Formula BMW Europe crown a year later. After a spell in the Formula 3 Euro Series, he switched to the GP3 Series in 2010 and stormed to the championship title with five race wins. Two seasons in GP2 followed, the second of which in 2012 saw him collect three victories and finish third in the standings. Gutierrez was given his first chance to test for the BMW Sauber F1 Team in 2009 and further opportunities have followed since then. His most recent outing in the Sauber was at the young driver days test in Abu Dhabi in November 2012.
