Manor Marussia finalizes Driver choices while F1 rival Sauber's line-up in Chaos...



Looks like I guessed correctly on who would be Will Stevens team-mate at Marussia for the season opening Australian Grand Prix. As Manor's announced that 23yr old Spaniard Roberto Merhi, who's manager is a Bloke named Mark Blundell will partner Stevens for what its calling the "Opening Rounds," which implies another "Pay Driver" with a bigger cheque is in the forthcoming future; Hmm? Can Y'all say "Guido-duh-Dutchman," perhaps?

Although Giedo van der Garde is  curiously trying to force Sauber F1 into taking him back as a racing driver, having just won his court case in Australia, wrangling over his Arbitration proceedings he's legally won - making me ponder how much Sauber will need to pay him to 'Bugger Off!


While obviously Sauber's disappointed over the verdict, especially since Team Principal Monisha Kaltenborn previously said they knew what they were doing and Giedo didn't have any legal legs to stand on; OOPS! As NO idea who'll be in the Sauber cockpit's this weekend, although you'd have to ARSE-sume Marcus Ericsson would be the odd man out since Felipe Nasr's "Banking" the team...


But back to our "Tail-ender Charlie" darlings, as Manor also announced Jordan King, current GP2 competitor as its Development Driver, as the 21yr old 'Brit is the son of Manor Marussia's interim Chairman Justin King.

Interestingly, Jordan King will contest this year's GP2 series for Racing Engineering, the same team that American F1 Hopeful Alexander Rossi will drive for this year...
