After Marussia lost 10th place in the standings at the very last race, their financial situation started looking much more bleak. I think they were counting on having that money (rumoured to be as much as $35M) for operating expenses this year.

Timo's not a paying driver, right? No doubt they needed his experience to help develop the car, but I think their finances have taken a turn for the worse, and they basically told him, "We can't pay you." Their only option at this point is to find another paying driver and limit development this season. Operating expenses should be higher this year with the addition of KERS.

I fear they may be headed down the same road as HRT...
