Formula One News » F1 2013 β Marussia consider Kevin Magnussen Posted on 18/10/2013
Marussia have expressed an interest in the McLaren backed Kevin Magnussen for the 2014 Formula 1 season as a possible replacement for Max Chilton.
Having already confirmed Jules Binachi for 2014, Marussia have one seat left to confirm.
Graeme Lowdon told Press Association Sport “Like any team that hasn’t confirmed drivers, there are a number of possibilities, certainly Kevin has impressed in the tests he has done, and as a team that has brought young drivers into Formula One, he is in the frame.
“But there are probably three or four drivers with good potential looking to get into Formula One, and we’re talking to a number of them, along with other teams.”
“Max is definitely an option because on the driving side he is doing a really good job. There has been real progress in a number of areas, and he has formed part of a tightly-knit team.
“We’re really quite keen to see continuity for next year because of the big technical change. If we decide to retain the current line-up it would be the first time we go into a new season with two drivers with some experience, so there’s something to be said for that.
“At the moment there is no particular rush. We’re just going through all the normal discussions we go through.”
