googol. not necessarily. bianchi is a talent and don't forget, marussia will have Ferrari power nxt year. of course, nobody knows which engine will be the best, but I would expect marussia to be better than caterham next year.

as an aside, marussia had the biggest financial loss ever in f1, last year, followed closely by lotus! nearly $60m

I would have thought he would have landed a better drive especially with his Ferrari connections. Murussia will improve but they will still be at the back of the grid fighting with Lotus and that is not going to change until F1 sorts itself out and there is a more level playing field and properly reduced costs and I don't see that happening in the near future.

bt33. obviously you do not follow f1 very closely. bianchi is part of the Ferrari academy and Ferrari placed him with marussia. they are hardly likely to have paid for him to drive if they thought he was no use. and don't forget, he is driving a car that has cossie power with nearly 100bhp less than caterham, but is pushing them hard.

I thought that he would be driving a Force India next year. He was one of their drivers after all. Maybe FI's close connections with McLaren will benefit Magnussen, so Bianchi has to fight with Caterhams again next year.

Richard, totally out of topic this but sure of interest to you.
Alonso “they are using something different compared to other teams but something that is completely ok because they pass all the checks”.
Lulu, “the last time I was able to put the pedal down that quick was in 2007 when we had traction control”.

With the 2014 regulations, it's very possible that Marussia can be Championship contenders and that Red Bull will be backmarkers. At the moment, everyone is making the gamble of engines knowing full well that it can either be a rocket or a dud. We don't know who's going to be fast or not until next season's preseason tests

I can't see them making a huge jump even with Ferrari engines and they are rumored not to be the strongest next year.

Best they can hope is to beat Caterham unless Williams woeful slide down the grid continues.

taz. rumours are ll very well, but the simple fact is that NO-ONE knows how the engines will stack up against each other. no power or reliability figures have been released by any of the maufacturers.
