Esteban Gutierrez believes this weekend’s United States Grand Prix is going to be very special as an American team will be competing on home soil.
The Haas F1 Team driver had a disappointing Japanese Grand Prix as he saw the chequered flag in twentieth, ten places down on where he started. After a spin on lap twenty after a clash with Carlos Sainz Jr, Gutierrez was unable to recover his positions and had to settle for this result.
This will be the first time since 1986 where an American team has entered an American Grand Prix, and with the team on home soil, Gutierrez believes it gives a special touch to their weekend.
“It’s important to represent America around the world,” said Gutierrez.
“But now that we get back home and go to Austin for the U.S. Grand Prix, it’s something very special because we are on American soil. That gives a special touch to our weekend. More motivation and great energy from the people to achieve a fantastic result.”
This weekend the Mexican will be representing an American team on American soil, the weekend after is the Mexican Grand Prix. So he will be representing his home country in his home race. Gutierrez believes this comes at a great time of the year as he can share the passi
“It’s going to be an intensive experience,” added Gutierrez. “Something that I will enjoy so much because it’s probably the two most special events for me this year.
“It comes at a great time of the year where we can share all this passion with all the people that have been supporting us from America and from Mexico.”
