This season’s Formula BMW-Europe Champion Esteban Gutierrez will be Team Mexico’s A1 rookie driver for the 2008-2009 season. The 17 year old, who was born in Monterrey, Mexico, tested with the team last year but failed to make the final cut as a rookie for the 2007-2008 season. After an extremely impressive season in Formula BMW-Europe (7 wins, 12 podiums) driving for Josef Kaufmann Racing, the Mexican driver has proven himself worthy; Team Mexico announced Esteban as their rookie driver for the season. Should he perform well, a race contract won’t be too far into the future.
