insists he is not worrying about speculation his F1 career might end after just a single season. Amid Sauber
's struggle for pace and survival in 2013, the rookie Mexican has also struggled to make an impression alongside teammate Nico Hulkenberg
. And even though boss Monisha Kaltenborn has denied the rumours, it is suggested the arrival of Sauber's new Russian partners could mean the team's existing Mexican sponsors - and Gutierrez - leave at the end of the season.
"All I know is that there is a lot of speculation," the 21-year-old is quoted by Brazil's Totalrace. "There are many people (drivers) around, many cars (for 2014), and this generates a lot of rumours and information that is not accurate," said Gutierrez. "Right now, the most important thing is that nothing has changed this season. I'm focused on doing a good job. The entire career of a driver depends on results, and this is what I am focused on. It doesn't matter much what I did or did not do in the first half of the season. The important thing is what I do in the second, and in this way I think I have much to gain and little to lose. I am determined and will make every effort to achieve what I have always wanted in my life," he added. (GMM)
