Charles Pic has revealed that his future in Formula One could be hanging in the balance, admitting that his future at Caterham is far from assured.
Pic joined Caterham this season, having impressed for Marussia in 2012 alongside Timo Glock, but the Frenchman’s future at the Leafield-based outfit could be under threat, with the team considering a number of drivers who can bring a budget to the team, with Marcus Ericsson, who finished sixth overall in this year’s GP2 Championship, just one of the names linked with the seat.
Speaking ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix, Pic said: “For next year, the logic for me would be to stay at Caterham but it’s not sure. I think there are still many seats available for next year, so we will see.”
When asked if the loss of his Caterham drive would spell the end of his Formula One career the 23-year-old responded: “It’s like that every year. In the end, I don’t think anything’s changed a lot.
“We try to focus on the races we have now and give our best this weekend. I will try to get a good result for the team and then we’ll see what happens for next year.”
Pic’s Caterham team still sit 11th and last in the Constructors’ Championship, behind their rivals Marussia by virtue of Jules Bianchi’s 13th place finish at the Malaysian Grand Prix in March.
