Record-breaker Chilton ‘likely’ to stay at Marussia

Max Chilton says it is “likely” he will stay at Marussia in 2014.

Max-Chilton-1The 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.  Germany’s 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 F1’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.
