Marussia confirm Jules Bianchi stay

Marussia team principal John Booth announces that Jules Bianchi will race for the team into next season.

Marussia have confirmed that Jules Bianchi will remain a part of the team next season.

The 23-year-old, currently in his debut season in Formula 1, is part of Ferrari's young driver academy, but joined the Russian team before the 2013 calendar.

"It gives us great pleasure to announce that we will go forward into 2014 with Jules as one of our race drivers," team principal John Booth told reporters ahead of this weekend's Korean Grand Prix.

"Jules joined us at very short notice at the end of pre-season testing, with only two days of running under his belt.

"He rose to the challenge of his debut season exceptionally well and since that time has clearly demonstrated his ability and potential."

Marussia will be using Ferrari engines as of next year.
