Chilton admits that he is likely to stay with Marussia beyond 2013
6 November, 2013
Rookie Max Chilton says it is likely that he will stay with the Marussia team in 2014.
The team is known for regularly changing its usually heavily-sponsored drivers, but Briton Chilton thinks he will stay for a second season next year.
Perhaps that is because of his consistency. Auto Motor und Sport points out that, in Abu Dhabi, the 22-year-old beat Tiago Monteiro’s old 2005 record for the most number (17) of consecutive finishes in a season.
Less noticeable in 2013, however, has been Chilton’s speed.
“I may have only outqualifed my teammate Jules [Bianchi] once, but I have outraced him at a few races now – especially since the August break,” he told Formula 1′s official website.
“Next year it’s most likely that I will stay with Marussia – but of course I have to get the deal done first,” added Chilton. (GMM)
