Max Chilton Biography


Max Chilton testing the Marussia MR02

Max Chilton testing the Marussia MR02

An unusual amount of attention will be placed on Marussia this season as Britain’s Max Chilton aims to prove he has got what it takes to sustain a career in Formula One. The announcement that Chilton has been signed by 2013’s lowest ranked manufacturer came as no surprise, and there is no doubting his potential after a strong GP2 season last year saw him finish 4th.

The 21 year-old has been a firm part of Marussia’s future plans and was appointed test driver for the second half of 2012, and after the exit of Timo Glock it was only natural for Chilton to make the step up. Chilton had been racing for the Marussia backed Carlin team.

The British driver has had a successful junior career which included being entered into the British Formula Three season, despite being under aged. A strong GP2 career saw him tested by Force India in 2011 and Marussia last season before been handed on of the last remaining race seats. Chilton will have a tough task on his hands to successfully beat his very highly rated team mate Jules Biancchi.

Racing is clearly in the Chilton family, as Max’s older brother Tom races in the World Touring Car Championship.
