Gutierrez targets first points

Esteban Gutierrez hopes to challenge for his first F1 points finish in Canada next weekend
Esteban Gutierrez says he feels strategy could be key to a solid result for Sauber in next weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.

The rookie will be chasing his first points finish at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and has enjoyed success in Montreal in the past, having taken a podium result while competing in Formula BMW back in 2007.

While he hasn't raced in Montreal since, Gutierrez said he was excited about making his return to the circuit and hopeful that he would be able to break his duck and secure his first top ten finish.

“It's a really nice circuit and I like it a lot,” the Mexican said. “The track is slippery and tyre management will yet again be very important, which gives us an opportunity to put a good strategy together. Obviously overtaking will be easier than in Monaco, which can benefit us.

“It's hard to judge how competitive we will be, as it will also depend on the weather. Hopefully with better conditions we can have a more consistent weekend, which will help us to progress and make the most of our potential.”

You need talent and a good car way before you get to strategy.. The only way I see Guti getting points this year is if a LOT of cars drop out and there is some fortutous weather condition that allows him to leap ahead.
