The unwell Sergio Perez has been withdrawn from Practice One due to sickness and will be replaced by Esteban Gutierrez.

In a statement, the Sauber team confirmed:

'Due to the fact Sauber F1 Team race driver Sergio PĂ©rez is unwell, the Sauber F1 Team has decided to let its reserve driver Esteban Gutierrez jump into the car for the first free practice session ahead of the Indian Grand Prix on Friday. This should help Sergio's speedy recovery so he is able to drive for the remainder of the weekend.'

Gutierrez's unexpected presence is bound to generate considerable interest - and perhaps a little cynicism - given that he is widely expected to replace the McLaren-bound Perez at the end of the season.
