John Booth – Team Principle
Ryan is said to be extremely pleased with the deal, and addressed the concerns of pay drivers he has brought with him.
Formula 1 has always had pay drivers, and now is no different. Goatcorp has supported me throughout my career and I am extremely happy we have reached the premier championship together. There is no doubt I have to perform, Marussia have entrusted me in their first season and I intend to repay them with results. It will be difficult no doubt, the competition are incredibly talented, but they don’t just let anyone drive these things.
Will Marussias decision to take on Tredrea pay off?
