Marussia may not feature on TV images from Melbourne (GMM) It is possible Marussia will be notably missing from next weekend’s television coverage of the 2013 season opener in Melbourne.
That is because Bernie Ecclestone is yet to agree a new Concorde Agreement with the backmarker team.
The F1 chief executive said recently that he has agreed bilateral financial deals with every team, Marussia included.
But, apparently, that deal does not include provisions for images of the Marussia car and driver to be broadcast on television.
Asked by ESPN whether it is a crucial missing element for Marussia just a week before opening practice in Australia, team boss John Booth answered: “No. It’s vital for Bernie because he won’t be able to film us without it.”
A team spokesperson confirmed that talks are now taking place.
“Nothing is signed yet,” agreed Booth, “but it’s getting pretty close now.”
