Marussia are apparently for sale, Haas F1 are coming in 2016, they want an American driver, they also want Ferrari power, Marussia has Ferrari power, am I putting 2+2 together and getting 5?

@CaterhamF1
maybe ou also forgot that the team was bought by a consortium of people? and they want their own drivers there. And Rossi has a contract with the original owner Tony Fernandes. Its still is Caterham but a different owner

Rossi bailed after Fernandes relinquished his team. Then 40 staff members were let go. That is why Alex jumped ship. It is true that Marussia has Ferrari power. And Haas will have those engines in 2016. This would also mean that Haas have struck a deal into pushing Alex into joining the Ferrari Driver Academy in an attempt to get a seat with the Scuderia in the near future.
