Max Chilton eager to stay on at Marussia not chase bigger team seat

Max ChiltonMax Chilton says he would be very happy to stay at Marussia for a second season in Formula 1 rather than chasing a seat higher up the field.

The 22-year-old British rookie believes another year in a small team will be the best thing for his development as a driver.

"I love the team and obviously I'd love to stay for another year and to keep learning," said Chilton.

"It's a good place to be. It's what a lot of drivers do, it's where you learn and become the driver you are. You work your way up.

"I'd love to stay with Marussia and work my way up with them because they have the right package and attitude."

Although team-mate Jules Bianchi's performances earned a lot of attention at the start of the season, Chilton is satisfied with how he has fared.

"I don't think I've underperformed," he said.

"The team were over the moon with my race in Monaco, and ecstatic when I made the overtakes, so I know the whole team are behind me."

Ahead of his first home grand prix at Silverstone this weekend, Chilton added that he did not mind being in the shadow of frontrunning compatriots Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton and Paul di Resta.

"Obviously I'm the newest and the least well known, but I'm fine with that because I'm new," he said. "It might change one day."
