Max Chilton has retained his Marussia F1 drive, less than one day after he “volunteered to step aside.”

According to Chris Medland from motorsport website crash.net, the 23-year-old will now retake his position with the Anglo-Russian team from Free Practice 2 after being replaced by Alexander Rossi yesterday.

Chilton had initially been dropped by the team due to “contractual issues”, a point later disputed by Chilton’s press group, The Sports PR Company.

The development adds another layer of confusion to the Marussia story, which began when Rossi was signed as development as reserve driver prior to the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend.
