New chassis for Gutierrez

Esteban Gutierrez will race with a new chassis in China after his terrifying Bahrain Grand Prix shunt.

The Mexican racer crashed out of last Sunday's grand prix when Pastor Maldonado T-boned his Sauber, flipping it.

The car came to a stop on its wheel but sustained damage in the roll.

As such, Gutierrez will have a new chassis for China which will also feature several updates.

"I have nice memories of Shanghai from last year," said the Mexican driver. "It was probably one of the best race starts in my Formula 1 career.

"I had a tough qualifying, but after the start and during the opening laps, I was able to overtake a lot of cars. Unfortunately, I couldn't finish the race.

"Regarding the track, I really like it, especially the entry into Turn 1. Looking back to the last three races, my performance will help me to get the maximum out of the car, in both, qualifying and the race.

"With the updates on the car, I hope we can increase our level of competition so we can achieve better results. Talking about China, it is an interesting place to visit.

"I will travel to Shanghai early to adapt to the time difference and climate, and I will use this time to learn about the Chinese culture."
