Marussia has changed its mind and Max Chilton is back in the car for the race this weekend. One has to presume that the contractual problems have been solved by the arrival of money from the Chilton camp. This is tough on Alexander Rossi as he was looking forward to making his F1 debut. Rossi ends up doing just the FP1 session.
The team’s future remains clouded at the moment with continuing rumours that it will be sold to an American consortium. One might speculate that the owner Andrej Cheglakov may want to hang on to the business until the inaugural Russian GP in the autumn.
