Rossi replaces Chilton for Spa
Alexander Rossi will replace Max Chilton at Spa. After having joined the team as reserve driver last month, the 22-year-old American driver will race for Marussia alongside Jules Bianchi.
Although it was not our intention to offer Alexander the possibility to race this season, in light of the circumstances we are pleased to be providing him with the opportunity to make his Grand Prix debut at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix in Spa-Franchorchamps. Naturally we hope to resume normal service with respect to our established race driver line-up as soon as possible, but for now we wish Alexander well for the weekend ahead and we look forward to seeing him in action. – Team Principal John Booth said.
