MILAN, Italy - Ferrari has signed Mexican Esteban Gutierrez as a test and reserve driver for the 2015 Formula 1 season.

The 23-year-old spent two years at Sauber after making his GP debut in Australia in 2013 and will provide back-up to Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, winners between them of five F1 Drivers' titles.


Director-general and team principal Maurizio Arrivabene said in a media release: "We're pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to Esteban who, although young, has plenty of experience of the new generation of Formula 1 cars."

Gutierrez, who didn't score any points for Ferrari-powered Sauber during the 2014 season, said: "It's an honour to become part of the Ferrari family, a team with such an exceptional history."
