Did Gutierrez seal his Fate at Interlagos?



First 'N foremost, I must remind Y'all of my being Blind! Right Mary Ellen? And therefore didn't actually S-E-E the confrontation caught on the camera's eye between now departed Haas F1 Driver Esteban Gutierrez and Team Principal Guenther Steiner, for which the 25yr old Mexican claims was simply portrayed wrong during the broadcast, and both he and Steiner subsequently laughed I-T off...


Yet whilst Gutierrez wasn't necessarily Gesticulating at his boss, nonetheless I first became aware Somme-thun' had gone horribly Pear-shaped when NBCSN's Booth Boy "Professor" (Steve) Matchett relayed to us somewheres' during the five hours 'O television coverage during those Red Flags at Interlagos... That Esteban's In-car radio tirade was so foul mouthed that I-T couldn't be aired on TV; CRIKEYS!

But we do know that Gutierrez was caught throwing his gloves in the Pitlane garage and from what Jeannie's told me, who's become my unofficial F1 "Eyes," Esteban was totally having a tantrum and Steiner simply grabbed him to scold him and tell him you're NOT behaving like that in my garage El Kiddo!

As Jeannie said it looked like Herr Guenther wanted to (rightly) take Esteban out to the Wood Shed...

Yet it's pretty funny how four times world champion 'lil Sid Viddle merely gets off scot-free, with nary a wrap upon Ye knuckles...


For which I mused to myself, and then think mentioned to Jeannie that that's the difference between being a quadruple F1 world champion and seemingly first year driver, although it's actually Gutierrez's sophomore season after a year's campaign at Sauber, before spending last year as a Scuderia Ferrari Simulator Jockey.

Hmm? Perhaps that's where he learned to cuss so proficiently over the radio?  Taking lessons from Ferrari team leader Seb Vettel, Ci? since thee Kimster' (Kimi Raikkonen) probably didn't teach him any Finnish swear words, eh?


As I'm still totally Cornfuzed over Vettel NOT being punished. As I'd say baffled, but not anymore by the FIA's legendous' flip-flopping tendencies! Although I totally agree 100% with Johnny Herbert's assessment over the situation.

Like seriously? Seattle Seahawks defensive star Earl Thomas gets a 15yd penalty for hugging a referee after scoring a "Pick-Six TD! Or A-L-L the other ludicrous 15yd "excessive" Celebrating penalties in the "NO FUN LEAGUE." (NFL)

While the most similar activity here Stateside surely has to be Will Power's legendous' Double Byrd salute to Billybob Brazenheartz', (Brian Barnhart) which cost the Aussie' 50-Grand! Whilst 'Ol 'PT, Mr. Chrome Horn or The Thrill from the West Hill, aka Paul Tracy was fined several times for questioning Stewards and the Sanctioning Body's decisions; but I digress...

Thus what I truly find funny about A-L-L of Haas F1's Glove Gate Damage Control, or PR Spin is coming from just one side, naturally being Gutierrez's, whilst Steiner & Company's silence speaks volumes to me, like you're  such old news Sunshine, Esteban Who? Did he use to work here?

Think I'm so intrigued by this since it's such a clear example of how the media's SPIN's used to shape & form opinions...

Now am I advocating for Gutierrez's dismissal from Formula 1? Absolutely not! As I have NO bones to pick with the seemingly stoic Mexicali, who always sounds profoundly older than his age whenever interviewed.

As Tacoma Bureau Chief Mary Ellen flitted past Thy Telie' saying isn't that the driver you used to Hate? When showing "Fredrico Suave," aka Fernando Alonso monkeying round as a cameraman during the Brazilian GP's Friday FP2 session, during one of the race's Red Flag periods. Uhm? I dunno? Suppose so, but that was an eternity ago when he was getting in Herr Schumacher's way... 


Making me realize I really don't have any Grand Prix villains' at the moment, although I'm NOT a Fan 'O Vettel's anymore, and pretty tired of Hamilton winning every G-DAMN Race! Telling myself you're gonna Fall so Bloody Hard one day Sunshine, after his flippancy over Brazil being such an easy win. Yo Lewis, that's because you didn't have any spray to contend with, comprende!

But clearly it's been a frustrating year for Esteban, who surely expected better things, as I'll be curious to see if he remains upon the grid? Although the two remaining rides aren't exactly winners, with Sauber running year old Ferrari PU's next year and Manor being the sport's Tail-gunner Charlie; YIKES!

As perhaps a year at Manor would improved Gutierrez's disposition? Although why couldn't Senor (Carlos) Slim simply buy Force India and rebrand I-T as Team Telmex F1? Giving Esteban a nice landing spot for a future All Mexican driver lineup. Or may be a move to Indy Cars, as who really knows Ci?

Although I'm now hoping that the rumours are true 'bout some Dude namedTavo Hellmund having shown interest in buying a controlling interest in the F1 Minnow Manor Racing is true and that Gutierrez will land there to continue his F1 career...
