F1: Record-breaker Chilton ‘likely’ to stay at Marussia

From GMM

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

The 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 Max Chilton.
