Bianchi set for another season with Marussia hints manager 7 September, 2013 Jules Bianchi, with Jean Todt, Michelle Yeoh and Nicolas Todt Jules Bianchi’s manager, Nicolas Todt, is not ruling out a second season at Marussia for the Ferrari backed French driver. Rookie Bianchi, 24, has impressed this year, but it has been rumoured that backers Ferrari want him in a better seat in 2014 – perhaps in a Ferrari-powered Sauber. But Bianchi’s manager Todt told RMC Sport that Marussia should not be dismissed. “The fact that there is an [engine] agreement with Ferrari in the long term is a good sign,” he said at Monza. “It shows that Marussia has ambition and that they will have a better car in the future. “Yes, Ferrari has relationships with some teams, and it is in Ferrari’s interest to exploit their opportunities to get Jules into another team. “But staying at Marussia would not be regarded as a backwards step, but rather a continuation of a great adventure,” Todt added. Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali confirmed at Monza that the Italian team will continue to support Bianchi in Formula 1 beyond 2013, with the ultimate aim of preparing the Frenchman for a possible future with the works team. “We want him to do two good seasons with a team that gives him the opportunity to gain experience, and Marussia is one,” he said.
