Max Chilton has been confirmed at Marussia for a second season, lining up alongside Jules Bianchi for 2014. The pair were teammates last season and will continue to work together for the coming year.

The announcement came after the FIA revealed the permanent driver number selections, including Chilton’s name on the list although not mentioning his chosen digits. Marussia made their official announcement at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, bringing Max Chilton on stage to discuss his second year in Formula One.

The Brit said: “You learn such a lot in your debut season, but the second year is when you can really pull all of those new experiences together and show your true potential. That has always been the case for me in the junior categories and I’ll be aiming for a similar step in my second year of F1 competition.

Team principal John Booth added: “In view of next year’s regulation changes, continuity is key, so it’s highly beneficial to our technical team that we retain the same driver line-up moving forward.”
