Gutierrez optimistic luck will change

Esteban Gutierrez is confident that his luck will change and he will be able to join Haas team-mate Romain Grosjean in scoring points, following a challenging start to 2016.

Feature: Gutierrez's second chance

Towards the end of 2014 Esteban Gutiérrez weighed up the options placed in front of him and plumped for the direction which few drivers would gladly take. He decided not to race.
