The Caterham Formula One team are unlikely to return to the sport that is the view of Sky Sports F1's Ted Kravitz. Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Kravitz stated that he thinks that if both Caterham and the Marussia F1 Team's fail to make it back to the grid next season then there will just be 18 cars on the grid in 2015 before it goes up to 20 cars when the Haas F1 Team joins the grid in 2016.

Kravitz believes that the Marussia F1 Team would prove to be the attractive prospect for any potential buyer because as it stands the Banbury based outfit are in ninth place in the Constructors championship on 2 points which if the finish the season in that position they will receive around £40 million in prize money.

It has been reported that an offer of £55 million to save the Marussia F1 Team has been made to the administrators dealing with the team by British-Indian brothers Bajinder Sohi and Sonny Kaushal.

Although both Caterham and Marussia will miss the next Grand Prix Kravitz revealed that both outfits could also miss the season finale in Abu Dhabi without it affecting their entry for the 2015 Formula One season.
