Another One Bites the Dust

Even if Manor do survive this offseason, Esteban Gutiérrez won't be one of their drivers.

In fact, he won't be anyone's driver, at least not in Formula One. Numerous reports surfaced today that Gutiérrez is instead finalizing a Formula E deal for the remainder of 2016-17 and beyond.

While there's no word on when the deal will be announced, Gutiérrez already seems committed to running the Mexico ePrix in April. As a native Mexican, Gutiérrez should be able to bring nothing but added interest to that race.

As an American, I'm obviously a big Haas F1 fan. I must say, Gutiérrez didn't impress me much this year. He always seemed a step behind teammate Romain Grosjean and didn't always have a very good attitude either. Hopefully the former Ferrari development driver can find more success in Formula E.
