    Never heard of him. Seems like a good guy. So... who'll replace him?

    He did one or two races for Caterham last year.
    Nothing much to shout about.

    my mistake.

    I just read that when he drove for Caterham he hadn't qualified for his Super License.
    I assume he now has?

    It's odd to me that I haven't seen or heard much stuff about him over this website, or any of the articles that I've read lately. Right now, all I know is that he won a championship in 2011 Formula 3 Euro series, and that he did 2 practice session for Caterham. I "heard" that he was being evaluated last year to take Kamui Kobayashi seat too, minus the fact he didn't have a super license at the time. Does anyone else know anything at all? I'm quite interested seeing another Spaniard in F1.

    Seems like he's actually got some half-decent credentials.
    I'm sure his chequebook is half-decent too

    In the only DTM race I ever watched (apart from when I went to a Brands Hatch Event), Merhi started at the back, got a penalty early on and ended up 2nd.

    Nope! It's a reason why the deal is only for Australia! He need to find backers to race more! :)

    But, if I'm not wrong that was his only top 5, and one of only... 4 or 5 point finished in 2 years in DTM. Didn't fit him too good.

    I heard he's staying in the team till the other series he is into starts. Then I think they will need someone else.
