F1: Leimer could be Marussia's Friday driver ?


The reigning GP2 champion is moving to put his formula one ambitions back on track.

However, still backed by his wealthy and long-time sponsor Rainer Gantenbein, the 25-year-old is now eyeing a new route back to the grand prix paddock.

Roger Benoit, the well-connected veteran correspondent for Blick newspaper, said Marussia's door may be opening to Leimer.

Reporting from Barcelona, Benoit said Leimer could become Marussia's reserve and Friday practice driver this year, and "for a relatively small amount of money".
