F1: Caterham And Marussia To Miss Next Two Races, Three Car Teams On The Cards
|Which face does Fernando have on today?|
Given that neither team's financial position looks viable it seems unlikely they'll make it to the season finale either. And next season? Not much chance there either.
As a result the agreement between the teams and rights holder (a certain Mr B. Ecclestone Esq.) will require that the remaining nine teams enter three cars in 2015. A prospect that no doubt has Fernando Alonso either bouncing in his seat with excitement (if he's still a free agent) or crying into his pillow (if he has signed a deal with Mclaren-Honda).
For Sauber this is likely to be the end of the road, leaving a grid of 24 cars, pending the arrival of the Haas F1 Team in 2016 - assuming that the prospect of having beat three car teams from some serious competitors (and the additional cost of a third car) doesn't scare them from the grid.
