Will Stevens was the benefactor of the crowd-funding which enabled Caterham to return to the grid for the 2014 finale after missing two races in administration.

His elevation to Formula One followed three seasons of Formula Renault 3.5, with 2014 his most successful season thanks to two victories for Strakka Racing. In 2014 he was signed as Marussia's reserve driver and looked set for a debut Friday practice appearance in Japan, only for his hopes to be scuppered due to a paperwork issue. Marussia subsequently fell into administration but Caterham's return gave him an F1 debut in Abu Dhabi.

He was named as a Manor race driver for 2015 as part of the team's plans to return to the grid.
