Charles Pic fears for his F1 future
Provisional: Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde
Possible: Esteban Gutierrez, Heikki Kovalainen and Giedo van der Garde
Neither Charles Pic nor Giedo van der Garde have had their places confirmed at Caterham for next season, but Pic recently admitted on Autosport before the final race of the season that he fears for his chances.
"For next year, the logic for me would be to stay in Caterham but it's not sure. I think there are still many seats available for next year, so we will see."
Van der Garde may be more secure due to the extra financial backing he brings and if Tony Fernandes can find some extra sponsorship backing for 2014 he may opt to go with the experience of proven race winner Heikki Kovalainen.
What appears certain is that one of Charles Pic or Giedo van der Garde will be jettisoned after Caterham team boss Cyril Abiteboul told Autosport they are seeking an experienced driver for 2014.
A combination of experience and younger blood is something that will make sense. As Caterham, we are committed to young people, to young talent. So I think that will stay. Experience is nice to have because it gives everyone confidence in terms of feedback and analysis, because next year we will be completely blind at the start.
That experienced driver could be either Kovalainen or Esteban Gutierrez, who Autosport understands visited Caterham's Leafield base recently.
