Gutierrez chasing consistency

Gutierrez chasing consistency

Sauber rookie Esteban Gutierrez is hoping for a more "consistent" weekend in Montreal after a trying time in Monaco.

Dealing with the rain in qualifying last Saturday, the Mexican driver could only manage 19th place on the grid as he carried over a three-place grid penalty from Barcelona.

Gutierrez, though, did improve as the 78-lap grand prix took place, working his way up to 13th.

However, it was another weekend without a first World Championship point for the Sauber driver, who is hoping for better in Canada.

"So far I have driven once at the track on Ile Notre-Dame, and that was in 2007 in Formula BMW," he said. "It went quite well with one podium finish and a fourth place.

"It's a really nice circuit and I like it a lot. 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."
