Has Max Chilton done enough to retain his seat?
Max Chilton believes he has done enough this year to warrant another spell at the Marussia team next season.
Chilton has been comprehensively outdriven by teammate Jules Bianchi in the majority of races this season, but when the pressure has been on in the last two races. the Englishman outqualified Bianchi in Korea and Japan.
As such, Chilton told The Independent that he feels he has done enough to warrant another crack of the whip.
I feel I'm showing I deserve a seat for next year. Everyone gets judged, so you have to prove yourself, which is hard for rookies these days because there is so little testing, which means it's going to take part of the season to get up to speed. I admit, at times, I haven't got things right, like at Silverstone and Germany, but on the whole it has been pretty good, and since the August break especially I couldn't have done much more.
Bianchi has already been confirmed for 2014, but the team are yet to decide on Chilton’s future.
