Chinese Grand Prix 2013: Gutierrez apologises to Sutil for crash

"It was definitely my fault, and I apologise to Adrian and to his team," he said contritely. "It's not a good feeling to finish a race like this."

Nor is it a good feeling knowing that he will head into next weekend's race in Bahrain with a five-place grid penalty to serve at the start. But Gutiérrez was trying to put such thoughts aide for now and find some positives to build his confidence ahead of the short turnaround between Shanghai and Sakhir.

"We have something to encourage us to keep going and to keep pushing," he said. "We had a good pace, and let's keep moving forward."
