The Formula 1 community came together this week to express its great shock and deep sadness at the news that Marussia has retained Max Chilton for 2014.
‘I just can’t believe this tragic news,’ said one senior F1 insider. ‘It’s events like this that really make you glad for the people around you and cause you to thank God that none of them are Max Chilton.’
Anyone wishing to express their sympathy can visit the Marussia factory to leave cards, flowers or messages. But not money. They’ve now got enough of that for another year.
