Sauber runs Frins and Gutierrez in Abu Dhabi test
Esteban Gutierrez will have his fourth test with Sauber when he takes part in the Abu Dhabi Young Driver test on November 6-8. The 21-year-old Mexican is widely fancied to graduate to F1 with the team next year, although it could initially be as a Friday driver.
Gutierrez finished third in this year's GP2 championship, behind Davide Valsecchi and Luiz Razia, and will drive on two of the three days at Yas Marina.
On the opening Tuesday of the test, however, 21-year-old Dutchman Robin Frijns will handle Sauber's C31.
Frijns won last year's Formula Renault Eurocup and goes into this weekend's Formula Renault 3.5 World Series final at Catalunya five points behind series leader and current Force India F1 Friday driver Jules Bianchi.
