 Bernie Ecclestone insists  that no more teams are set to follow HRT through Formula 1's paddock exit.

There has been speculation that the economic situation in the sport and the wider world could claim more scalps, with Marussia at the top of the list, having reportedly failed to negotiate a new Concorde Agreement with F1's “supremo”.

But after a meeting with team bosses last Thursday (Feb 7, 2013), chief executive Ecclestone said: "They are all safe. We have got a deal with them all, including Marussia. We're continuing with Marussia.  I thought they were going to go but they are not."

Marussia's sporting director Graeme Lowdon confirmed that "discussions" about a final agreement with Ecclestone were taking place.

Ecclestone said F1's teams should be happy with the terms.

"They've all got more money than god," he quipped.
