Just because Marussia are contemplating pay drivers does not mean they will be bad. In glock's 3 years at the team, 2 (digrassi, dambrosio) of the 3 pay drivers he had as teammates have beat him.

Last year Charles Pic would have beat him too if he did not get passed for 11th place in Brazil. But considering that Timo was in F1 much longer even the fact that Pic, a rookie almost beat him is not a good sign for a lead driver.

I doubt any salaried driver would retain their drive if they were beaten 2 years in a row by rookie pay drivers.

Marussia simply signed a bad contract with him to begin with. They should have had performance clauses in his deal.
