Esteban Gutierrez could be close to announcing his plans for 2016.
This year, after the Mexican lost his Sauber race seat, he signed up to be Ferrari’s reserve driver.
And now it is reported the 24-year-old’s next step could be to the new Ferrari-linked American entrant Haas, backed by his powerful Mexican sponsors.
Gutierrez wrote on Facebook: “This weekend I had an important meeting which will have a big repercussion in my professional life.
“Nothing that comes in my way will stop me, neither will change the person who I have the fortune of being,” he added
Early of last month, Haas F1 team Founder Gene Haas has revealed that he has trimmed a list of potential drivers down to five names, with Gutierrez seemingly his first choice.
When asked about giving the Mexican a seat next year, Haas told Motorsport.com: “He’s a Ferrari reserve driver, so Ferrari would be interested in seeing how he does and it kind of helps both parties.
“We get a driver who Ferrari thinks has a lot of potential and we can see how he does too.” (ThisisF1/GMM)
