CHARLES PIC: Is the 2012 Marussia driver heading for Caterham in 2013?

INTERLAGOS, Portugal - Caterham's new boss, Cyril Abiteboul, has all but confirmed paddock speculation that Charles Pic will join the team from Marussia for 2013 as part of Tony Fernandes' new "three-year plan".

France's f1i.com quoted Abiteboul as saying: "This is a three-year plan and there are still many factors that need to come together to make it a reality but this project seems interesting for everyone."

MAIN CONTENDER

It seems highly rated Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen is being pushed out by "pay drivers" due to Caterham potentially losing lucrative Concorde Agreement income to Marussia. Kovalainen admitted on Thursday that Brazil could be his last GP.

The main contender for the seat alongside Pic in 2013 is sponsored Dutch driver Giedo van der Garde.

"There is at least one more seat open," Kovalainen said here in Brazil.  "It is still possible that I will get it but fom my experience I know that when things drag on for this long, it's never a good sign."

Stay with Wheels24 for the 2012 Brazilian F1 GP weekend.
