Money matters to Calado
7:30am Thursday 19th September 2013 in Sport
JAMES Calado is aware cash rather than talent is required to make the seat permanent after starting his test and reserve driver role with Sahara Force India.
He joined fellow Britons Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button in first practice for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
The 24-year-old from Cropthorne, who intends to leave the GP2 Championship this year after two seasons, is closer to fulfilling a childhood ambition.
But, after being supported by the Racing Steps Foundation since 2007, he will have to stand on his own two feet in 2014.
Calado, managed by Nicolas Todt, said: “Already, without me even knowing, they are probably looking for some sort of sponsorship because, as a young driver, I would say it is impossible to get into Formula One without any money at all.
“Talent alone is not enough now.”
