ERJ staff report (LMH)
Milan, Italy -- Lotus GP2 driver Esteban Gutierrez has won the inaugural Pirelli Trophy for tyre management, which was presented to him by Pirelli's racing manager Mario Isola at the GP2 prize-giving ceremony in Paris, 19 Oct.
Gutierrez was judged to have used his tyres in the best way all year by a panel of 50 international Formula One and GP2 journalists, who were tasked with voting for a winner.
One of the keys to Gutierrez's success was his ability to manage tyres, meaning that he enjoyed a run of consecutive points finishes from the start of the season all the way to Monaco - demonstrating consistency as well as speed, Pirelli said.
