"It’s still pretty much coming together," Wolff said. "It’s a very interesting competition they are having within Manor and we are still evaluating the future and talking with a couple of teams, and working together for next year, but it’s still very early days."
"Frankly, nationality, we don’t want to start having some tactics in terms of nationality," Abiteboul said. "We want him to be fast, we want him to make some contribution to the team, just like Nico will be doing with his experience.
"We know he had a strong spirit and can contribute to get the team together, so the second driver should be doing exactly the same.
"We have a bit of time to make the decision. We have a couple of options. People are interested and attracted by our project and that’s what is satisfying."
