Gutierrez downplays exit rumours

Gutierrez downplays exit rumours

Esteban Gutierrez says rumours of his pending exit from Sauber are "not true."

Gutierrez is one of six drivers yet to score a point this season but only one of two from an established team, the other being Valtteri Bottas.

But unlike Bottas who has impressed many at Williams, Gutierrez has yet to have a stand-out drive in his debut season.

Gutierrez's struggles come in the midst of Sauber's new deal with Russian sponsors, which is set to give Russian teenager Sergey Sirotkin a 2014 race-seat.

And, according to the rumour mill, should that happen Gutierrez could be on his way out.

The Mexican racer, though, has downplayed the reports.

"There is a lot of speculation," he told TotalRace. "We really should not consider news what is not true.

"As I said, many drivers and many teams are generating a lot of speculation and rumours that are not accurate."
