LONDON, England - Esteban Gutierrez is set to secure one of the four remaining race seats for the 2014 Formula 1 season.

F1 correspondent for Germany's Sport Bild, Bianca Garloff, , reported that Sauber will make the announcement about Adrian Sutil's team mate in December 2013.


The news will heighten speculation that Sauber's Russian rescue deal is on the rocks, as teenager Sergey Sirotkin was expected to make his grand prix debut in 2014 for the struggling team.

Gutierrez (22) made his F1 debut  in 2013 for Sauber, which has been backed by the Mexican telcom Telmex since Sergio Perez drove for the team in 2011 and 2012.

He was recently spotted visiting Caterham's British headquarters but Gutierrez staying at Sauber would firm up Giedo van der Garde's chances of remaining in green overalls in 2014, possibly to be joined by Swedish rookie Marcus Ericsson.

The other remaining 2014 vacancy is at Marussia but team boss John Booth said the Briton Max Chilton is likely to remain Jules Bianchi's teammate.

Booth said: "We are very close (to re-signing) with Max, very close. He wants to stay and we want him to stay so it's a matter of sorting the details out really."
