Marussia team owner Nikolai Fomenko has confirmed speculation British rookie Max Chilton will make his formula one debut in 2013. Fomenko, the head of Russian supercar Marussia who bought into the then Virgin team at the end of 2010, was asked by Russian journalists the identity of the driver replacing Caterham-bound Frenchman Charles Pic.

International reports, including RMC (France), Speed Week (Switzerland) and MTV3 (Finland) say Fomenko answered Chilton's name, the GP2 driver whose wealthy father Grahame is the chairman of the Aon company. The reports said Chilton comes with a financial contribution of EUR 11.5 million. Meanwhile, Fomenko dismissed reports Marussia is weighed down with US $125 million in debt. "We have debts, but not $125m, as I read recently," he insisted. (GMM)
