Esteban Guerrieri (born 19 January 1985 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine racing driver.[1]

Career[edit]

After graduating from karts, Guerrieri competed in various Formula Renault 2000 championships from 2001 to 2003. He won the Formula Renault 2000 Masters series in 2003, with 124 points and three wins from eight races in total.

Guerrieri driving for Ultimate Motorsport at the Croft round of the 2008 British Formula Three season.

For 2004, he took the large step up to Formula 3000, driving for BCN Competición. He performed well in his début year, finishing tied on 28 points in seventh place with compatriot and fellow rookie José María López. His best result came at the Hockenheim round of the season, where he finished in third place.

Despite this impressive showing, Guerrieri was unable to get a drive when F3000 changed into the GP2 Series for 2005, and spent that year and 2006 in the Formula 3 Euro Series, both seasons with Manor Motorsport. He finished fourth in the standings, with 58 points, two wins and two pole positions.

He competed in British Formula Three for 2007 with Ultimate Motorsport Team finishing thirteenth overall in the final standings. Returning for 2008, he achieved the best result for him and his team with a second place on Monza, the third race of the year. After that race, he moved to the Formula Renault 3.5 Series. He took his first FR3.5 win in the final race of the season. He did however return to F3 at the Bucharest meeting taking a pair of fourth positions.

In 2009, Guerrieri drove for various teams in the Superleague Formula series, winning two races in the process. For 2010 he has returned to Formula Renault 3.5 full-time, although budgetary concerns have caused him to miss races.

In August 2010, Guerrieri revealed that he has a priority contract with the Virgin Racing Formula One team for a 2011 race seat, providing that he can raise $8 million. Guerrieri's manager has held discussions with the Argentine Interior Minister on the subject of possible government funding.[2] The Argentine government has previously provided financial support to compatriot José María López's attempts to enter Formula One.

For the 2011 year Guerrieri went to the United States with the ultimate goal of racing in the Indycar Series, starting with the Indy Lights. During the 2011 Indy Lights season Guerrieri drove for Sam Schmidt Motorsports.[3] He finished the season runner-up to teammate Josef Newgarden.During the off season he was offered a ride from the KV Racing Technology team but after not being able to get the money to compete in the Indycar Series he made the choice to stay in the United States and run one more year in the Indy Lights with SSM. He finished second in the championship behind his teammate Tristan Vautier.

In 2013, Guerrieri switched to the Argentinian touring car series Turismo Carretera to drive a Dodge for Oil Competición.[4]
