What a waste, he is a good driver. F1 throws another driver on the garbage heap to be replaced by someone with a lot of money... Very sad.

Shows how bad things are at Marussia, basically since they missed the last spot they have a massive hole in their budget.

Bruno's 14 million sponsorship will plug that nicely, I wouldn't be surprised to see him been a Marussia driver soon, he has backing and is experienced enough to do a decent job.

Comprehensively outperformed by three rookie teammates when he was supposed to bring experience to the team. It's better to receive money from another pay driver than give money to an 'experienced' one who under performs. I bet Marussia will enjoy that extra cash.

Yea, these guys were an obviously better choice than Prodrive. we got rid of HRT last season, maybe we can get rid of Marussia this one. Then all will be right.

I think it about time Glock moved on.

I like seeing Petrov in F1 myself and hope he gets the seat.
Not sure if he is the best option available, but better him than Senna, Alguersuari or Buemi.

Stop pricing teams out of F1!!
HRT, now it'll be Marussia, Force India...
And with no new teams...

I wholeheartedly agree on that. Having few teams is actually not a good sign and seeing teams that can't even dream about being promoted from GP2 isn't either.

Bernie think F1 can do with 10 teams but if 2 depart, what will the grid look like ? And I prefer to have several outfits than 3 or 4 cars teams.
