It looks like Caterham won’t be the only team that won’t be racing at the US Grand Prix next week – Marussia will also skip the race, according to F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone yesterday in a report by Reuters.

In addition, Marussia will also most probably skip the Brazil race as well, since Formula One Management’s arranged transportation for teams are supposed to take them directly from the US race to the Brazil race.

This means there will only be nine teams with 18 cars for the two races. We wonder if this is what the grid will look like for next year’s season.
