Gutierrez still feels he has options in Formula 1

Mexican driver Esteban Gutierrez says he has other options in Formula 1 if he doesn’t secure a seat at Haas F1 for 2017.

The American team have yet to announce their full driver line up for 2017 and Gutierrez’s seat looks under pressure.

Haas F1 are set to retain Romain Grosjean who has scored all of their points this season, Gutierrez has yet to a score a point underperforming in the Haas car.

Gutierrez is confident of retaining his seat but may take a reserve role with another team, the Mexican has been a reserve driver at Ferrari in previous season’s and could resort back to the Scuderia team.

Speaking to Gutierrez said, “There are alternatives we are considering. In the coming weeks we will make a decision. There are other interesting opportunities that we cannot put aside.”

His main priority is of course Haas and with six races remaining Haas look in a comfortable eighth place in the Constructors Championship which is a good showing considering it is their debut season.

A second pointless season could lead the Mexican vulnerable but with strong investment from Mexico this could keep him in the sport for yet another season.

Grosjean has outperformed the American car with an extremely strong opening few races leaving Haas ahead of Renault, Manor and Sauber.
