Esteban Gutierrez says the marshal killed at the Canadian Grand Prix last year remains in his thoughts, on the anniversary of the accident.

Mark Robinson, a 38-year old volunteer member of the Automobile Club de l'Ile Notre Dame, sadly passed away in an incident at the end of the race, when he was caught under the wheels of a rescue vehicle recovering Gutierrez's stranded Sauber.

"The race [last year] was not good as an ending with what happened going out of the pits and then with what happened after the race. It was not very pleasant," Gutierrez said.

"At the moment we [Sauber] don't have anything planned [to commemorate it]," he added. "We did something last year, which was a bad time for the family."

The marshals at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve will wear black arm bands this weekend as a sign of respect and when asked if he might do something personally as well, the Mexican replied: "Obviously personally it is important [to show respect]. But some things are not completely in my hands. It is something we need to do as a group decision [a team and as a sport].

"People relate it directly to me because it was my car. But it was about the whole procedure of the security system that needs to be played around the marshals. It is not only about one team, one driver.

"It is about the whole of Formula One."
