Gutierrez ready for biggest challenge yet

The lack of any available time in the car so far is not to say that Gutiérrez has been having an easy time of things since the end of the 2012 race season - quite the contrary.

"The winter preparations went really well," he said. "Apart from all my training back home, I also had the chance to spend very good days in Austria in December and January concentrating on my physical preparation, mainly based on winter sports like cross country skiing, climbing through the snow, etc."

And despite the obvious excitement of graduating to his dream job in F1, Gutiérrez insisted that nerves would not an issue.

"I think the most important challenge in F1 is to adapt to the whole psychological atmosphere of it," he said. "The challenge that I really want to achieve is to be consistent in a high competitive level - this is what I'm looking for," he summed up.
