Sauber 'pushing very hard'

Sauber 'pushing very hard'

Despite having yet to score a single World Championship point, Esteban Gutierrez has urged Sauber to head to Montreal with a "positive mindset."

Racing around in a car that is overweight, Sauber is one of only two teams who have yet score this season.

Sauber have come close a few times and it appeared in Monaco as if they would finally score only for Gutierrez to tag the guardrail and retire.

The Mexican racer is keen to put that behind him, hopeful that the next race, Canada, will suit his Sauber C33.

"The track in Montreal requires a high top speed as well as good mechanical grip," he said.

"The surface is quite slippery there, so the tyre compound will be important.

"The way the tyres warm up is especially significant, because we have to keep in mind that they have a lot of time to cool down on the long straights.

"The track itself is a combination of a street and permanent circuit.

"There is a lot of history behind the Canadian Grand Prix, and it is a traditional race. Overall, it is a nice event.

"We have to approach the race weekend with a positive mindset. The whole team is pushing very hard to improve our current situation."
