February 7th, 2013 (F1plus Team).- Sauber’s C32 was put for first time and in real conditions in the hands of rookie Esteban Gutierrez who followed and extensive program today at Jerez

"It was a very positive day with 110 laps. I had the chance to get to know the car and the tyres that are behaving quite differently. Because of this it was important to understand the warm­up characteristics and the behavior on long runs with high fuel loads.

The Mexican clocked a time of 1:19.934 min, which was good for eight overall, more than a second better than Bottas from Williams.

Nevertheless, Gutierrez understands that gaining experience and time with the car should be his main objective.

“It was very interesting to feel the progress ­ something that gets me up to speed. I’m positive about the new car and I immediately felt comfortable in it.“

This would be Gutierrez first season in Formula 1, and he will replace countryman Perez who left for McLaren.
