Esteban Gutierrez expressed his satisfaction after securing his first Formula 1 points at the Japanese Grand Prix.

Gutierrez started from 14th on the grid but made a strong start to run inside the top 10 throughout the race.

The Mexican eventually came home in seventh place - taking six points - after fending off Nico Rosberg throughout the final laps.

"Finally I can feel great satisfaction after the race," he said.

"It has been a lot of work to get up to this point and, while it has not been an easy path, I think it has been a very solid one."

"Over the past few races we have been improving a lot and, as I said yesterday, we have to keep optimistic and this is the result of that. Knowing we can achieve something like this, you really go forward and do your best and push."

"Even though the last few laps were very difficult with Nico Rosberg behind me, it was overall a great race. I want to thank the team as is has done a great job today."
