SEPANG, Malaysia -- Esteban Gutierrez says he is within his rights to push the blue flag rules to the limit in order to minimise the impact it has on his race.Gutierrez has come under fire this season for not moving out of the way of the leaders when blue flags are shown. The rule is in place to stop backmarkers becoming involved in the battle for the lead and the driver being lapped is supposed to move out of the way by the time he has passed the third marshal post displaying blue flags.Mercedes boss Toto Wolff accused Gutierrez of cruising around and interfering with the battle for the lead at the Singapore Grand Prix, but the Haas driver hit back saying he was entitled to do what is best for his race while remaining within the regulations.Im going to reply very simple, he said. The same way that Toto is trying to lose the list of possible blue flag drivers, and trying to put pressure on the FIA to be stricter on that and to lose less time, in the same way, me as a driver getting the blue flag, Im trying to lose the least time possible within the rules and without affecting anyone. So the same thing that he is doing I am doing it as well.I think it was spot on [in Singapore]. I think I didnt affect anyone, I didnt lose time myself and I finished in front of Felipe [Massa], so that was the target I was pushing like you have no idea the whole race.Obviously, when you get a blue flag you want to lose the least time possible. I know that Toto said that I was cruising around, so obviously he hasnt driven a Formula One car, because it wasnt the case.Gutierrez admitted he was on the limit of what was allowed at the Hungarian Grand Prix when Lewis Hamilton was trying to lap him and flicked the bird at the Mexican as he passed on the pit straight.In Budapest I went a bit too far, and I know where the limit is, so Im playing with the line. Obviously every team principal wants their driver to be as quick as possible, so thats what I will do and I want it for myself as well because I was fighting for a position. Whether they compare me with other drivers I dont really care, because Im focussing on my own race and trying to do my own thing.Asked if it could damage his reputation, Gutierrez said: I dont see it as a danger I see it as a positive because its more publicity, I have to thank them for the publicity they give me.

"It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Richard Lagow waited four long years to start a Football Bowl Subdivision game.Hes about to get his chance.Indiana coach Kevin Wilson announced Friday that the 6-foot-6, 240-pound Texan beat out Zander Diamont and will line up behind center in Thursday nights season-opener at Florida International.Hes really playing the best, Wilson said. The other guys are playing better, and Zander gives you kind of a change-up out there. But the guy were going with is playing really, really good.For Lagow, the decision cemented the notion that he could excel at a power-five school -- even if it the journey there took longer than expected.The big quarterback with the big arm left his home state of Texas in 2013 to play for Connecticut. Before the season opener, Lagow transferred to Oklahoma State where he walked on and redshirted. The next season, Lagow landed at Cisco (Texas) Community College.There, he started for two years, throwing for 4,506 yards and 38 touchdowns, emerging as one of the nations top junior college players.Wilson convinced Lagow to give Indiana a shot, and now after attending four schools in four conferences, Lagow finally has his dream job.He has the arm strength, and he really has taken that leadership role on the field, offensive coordinator Kevin Johns said. Hes really done a lot of things well.Indiana didnt make any quarterbacks available for comment on Friday.Wilsons decision was hardly a surprise. After Lagow moved to Bloomington for the second semester, he participated in spring practice and appeared to take the early lead.When practice resumed Aug. 3, Wilson said the quarterback derby would be an open competition, not a coronation.After seven practices, Wilson already had made up his mind and divvied up the snaps accordingly.Diamont, who was a better runner than passer in his first two seasons with the Hoosiers, played well enough to keep the No.dddddddddddd 2 job. Danny Cameron, the son of former Indiana coach Cam Cameron, will open the season No. 3 on the depth chart.Teammates were impressed with what they saw from all three quarterbacks, but understood why Wilson went with Lagow.Rich has grown in every aspect, receiver Ricky Jones said. I believe hes gotten on the same page as the receivers in a short period of time and thats pretty impressive.Diamonts advantage was his experience in the offense.As a true freshman, he started the final six games after Indianas top two quarterbacks went down with season-ending injuries. The former Los Angeles city player of the year was 64 of 132 with 515 yards one TD and four interceptions in 2014.Last year, Diamont filled in again last year when Nate Sudfeld, the starter, went down with another injury. After replacing Sudfeld against Ohio State, Diamont ran for a 79-yard TD -- the longest run by a quarterback in school history. He finished the game with seven carries for 98 yards, caught one pass for 16 yards and was 6 of 14 for 76 yards through the air.He struggled the next week against Penn State in his only start. The 6-1, 174-pound junior hasnt played in a game since Oct. 10.Wilson has used quarterback rotations in previous seasons and will look for ways to get Diamont on the field.We can put two quarterbacks on the field at the same time, Wilson said. Hes not a receiver, but he can play on the perimeter. Zander gives you some running skills the other guys dont have, so you may see them both lined up in the backfield at times.But, for now, Lagow is the starter.Im curious to see how he reacts in a game, because hes been great in practice, Wilson said.
