Kobayashi abandons hope for 2013 drive

Kamui Kobayashi has today admitted that he has no chance of getting a drive in F1 for the 2013 season.

The Japanese driver was dropped by Sauber in favour of Nico Hulkenberg and Esteban Gutierrez, despite Kamui getting within 6 points of his McLaren-bound teammate.

Recently, Kobayashi set up a fund to help raise money for his efforts to get a race seat in 2013. This, along with an undisclosed amount of sponsor money, totalled over €8m.

However, it appears that money was not the deciding factor, and Kamui has stated that he will wait until 2014 to return to the F1 paddock.
