Mexican driver Esteban Gutierrez expects his future with the Haas team to be decided in the next two weeks, he told a news conference ahead of his home Mexican Grand Prix on Thursday.

The Haas team has indicated that it will keep Frenchman Romain Grosjean for 2017, but has said little about the identity of his future team-mate, currently Gutierrez.

"I think Haas have been very clear in the media," said Gutierrez.

"They want to wait a few more races. We are now considering something and it will be important to close something soon as we cannot afford to wait to a few more races -- the deadline should be in the next two weeks."

Gutierrez has yet to score a point this season with Grosjean responsible for all 29 points registered by the Haas team.
