The chances of a Canadian in F1 are reduced ...

Robert Wickens, the Toronto driver who won the European Formula Renault 3.5 title in 2011, hope always unhook a flying full-time in Formula 1 next season, but his chances are emerging as very thin.

Reserve driver for the stable Marussia (formerly Virgin Racing), Wickens had the opportunity to play a test session on the Friday before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Also in the capital of the UAE, it also drives the week of the Virgin and the Renault F1 racing, french gift manufacturer and partner in Lotus Champion F.RENAULT 3.5.

Renault, which will be called Lotus-Renault next year at this time was spoiled for choice as to which driver will be teammate Kimi Raikkonen, between Petrov, Senna, Grosjean, Sutil or Barrichello veteran, in addition to the returns possible to Robert Kubica in the second half of the season. Hire a rookie is therefore not part of the plans.

As a Team Marussia, which relied heavily on Wickens, she has already confirmed the German Timo Glock, renewed for a third season, and the French Charles Pic to drive the second car. Fourth last GP2 championship, advises the former Olivier Panis and very well supported financially by a media group and a French oil company driver, Pic was the logical choice. What are the options when Wickens? "I Fly Away or there will be an opportunity" has he recently said. The problem is that there are only very few frills available for next season and they are trading well beyond the amounts the Canadian pilot of 22 years is capable of collecting this time.
