A very early test

Formula 1 Testing, Jerez

Esteban Gutierrez first test an F1 car at the age of 18 as a result of winning the Formula BMW Europe title in 2009. The Mexican got behind the wheel of that year's BMW Sauber at Jerez, but BMW would soon pull out of F1. Despite this, Gutierrez was eventually named test and reserve driver at Sauber late in 2010 and progressed to a race seat in 2013.
