Marussia released a statement on Thursday which stated that Rossi would replace Chilton while 'contractual issues' were resolved. 

 

On Friday morning Marussia applied to change their nominated driver for the Belgian Grand prix from Rossi back to Chilton. 

 

The stewards accepted the decision and Rossi only took part in FP1, finishing 20th overall.
