Formula 1 no longer realistic in 2015 – manager Frijns

Tue, 10 February 2015, 10:49

In talks with the manager of Robin Frijns, Timo Gans, confirmed that Formula 1 is no longer a realistic option for Frijns in 2015.

Frijns was testdriver with Caterham in 2014 and with Sauber in 2013. For both teams Frijns hardly drove kilometers.

Gans said he is still working very hard on a good raceseat for Robin Frijns in 2015.

Since Caterham went bankrupt Frijns is lasted without a seat. Last month Frijns tested for BMW in DTM, however BMW decided to contract other drivers for their DTM teams.

“We are working very hard, and we are now looking to other teams in other series”, Gans told “We are talking to other series and teams, but it’s too early to say how this will develop.”

Frijns won the Formula Renault 3.5 championship in 2012, but since then the talented Dutchman has seen that other new young talents overtook him for a seat in Formula 1. Including his countryman Max Verstappen, who is only 17 years old, and will debut in Australia next month with Scuderia Toro Rosso.
