F1 >>> nEWs Romain Grosjean and sergio Perez will stay with their teams in 2015. The Frenchman (right) will remain in place and race a Mercedes-Benz-powered Lotus alongside Pastor Maldonado next season. He will maintain his links with personal sponsor Total oil, in spite of the fact that the team will, in line with other Mercedes teams, use Petronas lubricants. “It’s fantastic for me to be continuing with Lotus F1 Team for 2015 and it’s superb to have the support of everyone at enstone,” he said in a statement. “It’s no secret that we’ve had a really tough season this year, but the team has remained focused and we’re all determined to return to regular points-scoring in 2015. I have been spending a lot of time recently at enstone and I’m feeling very positive about the potential of the e23, which should represent a return to form for the team.” Meanwhile Force India has signed Perez to a multi-year deal and he will also race for Mercedes power, alongside Nico Hulkenberg, next year. “It’s good to announce my plans,” the Mexican driver said in a statement. As soon as I joined sahara Force India, I noticed the hunger and determination of everyone in the team, and I’m very proud to be part of that. I feel at home here and I’m fully committed. I’m enjoying my racing and we’ve already celebrated some special results together. It’s important for me to establish myself in a team and have some continuity. The team have given me a competitive car this year and I believe we can continue to achieve great things together in the future.” romain remains; perez geTs a perezenT Marussia failed to make it to Abu Dhabi and its future now appears to be bleak. Reports of employees in team uniforms in the Yas Marina pit lane suggested that the team was mounting an 11th-hour bid to return to racing after missing two races. There were even reports that the team had prepared its cars for transport to the Gulf. But it appears that the men in red uniforms were Ferrari technicians preparing for the unlikely possibility of the team arriving at the track. It also appears that any hope of the team finding a saviour have come to nought. Former driver Max Chilton Tweeted: “Devastated for everyone involved at Marussia in the past 24 hours that the hard work trying to get to Abu Dhabi didn’t work out as we hoped.” marussia fades To greY 13 GPWEEK.com // 13 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
