Esteban Gutiérrez will not take part in Canadian Grand Prix Qualifying after crashing into the wall during FP3.

The Sauber driver lost control of his car entering Turn 3 and Turn 4 chicane and slammed the wall early on in the one hour morning session. He was not injured in the incident.

After an investigation it was announced by the team that the chassis was beyond repair, however they will work over time to ensure that the Mexican makes it on to the grid for the race on Sunday.

It’s been a torrid couple of weeks for Gutierrez who also crashed in Monaco, while in a points paying position which would have been more than welcome for Sauber who have yet to score points so far this season. (GP247)
