Caterham and Marussia to miss next race: Bernie Ecclestone

The struggling Caterham and Marussia Formula One teams will both miss next week`s U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, the sport`s commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone said on Saturday.

"Neither of those two teams are going to go to America," he told Reuters.

Caterham are in administration while Russian-registered Marussia are struggling financially and are still reeling from French driver Jules Bianchi`s serious accident in Japan three weeks ago.

Neither team was immediately contactable on Saturday.
