"If Caterham doesn’t come back there are going to be nine teams so we will be the tenth team and I don’t think Bernie is going to allow start-up teams any more."
"Marussia's ninth place in the constructors' championship last year put it on course for £35 million prize payment this season, but the team would have to race to qualify for it."
"McLaren-Honda has already been in contact with the FIA with regard to this issue, but we do not wish to say anything further at this time."
