Chilton: My seat is safe

Max Chilton will remain on the grid for the rest of the year with the Britain confirming his Marussia seat is safe.


The 23-year-old looked appeared set to miss out on the Belgian Grand Prix last time out with Marussia confirming on the Thursday that he would be replaced by Alexander Rossi due to "contractual issues".

However less than 24 hours later the team made a U-turn and Chilton replaced Rossi after Free Practice One at Spa.

Asked if he would drive in the remaining seven races, Chilton replied: "Yes. What happened was a commercial decision which got changed, and we are now back to normal.

"It's all been sorted out and it's now in the past. We're now looking forward as we're still in an amazing position as a team.

"The best thing we can do now is focus on staying ahead of Sauber."

He added: "Yeah well there was never really an issue in the first place. It was a busy weekend, I'm not going to lie, but it was a commercial decision that was overturned by senior management over the course of Thursday evening. So, my weekend didn't really change. I was always out of the car for practice one for Alex, our reserve driver, and so it was nice to be back in the car for free practice two, because Spa is my favourite circuit so we ended up having a good race and a good weekend."

Hopefully there's nothing strange under Rosberg's cap
