Will Stevens says he is ready to stay in Formula 1 beyond the end of 2015, as he bids to prove his value within the sport.

Stevens occupied roles with Caterham and Marussia last year before stepping up to a race seat in Abu Dhabi with the now defunct Caterham squad.

Stevens subsequently moved across to the revived Manor Marussia outfit and has a best finish of 13th, which he achieved at his home race in Britain.

"We’re racing at the back, but the people inside F1 can still see that you’re doing a good job and achieving the maximum you can in the car that you have," he told the official F1 website.

"So far I think people are seeing that - or at least that’s what I’ve heard. It doesn’t matter where I am on the grid, this year was all about me proving I’m ready to be in F1 and I’m ready to stay in F1.

"I’m not here just to do a year or a few races - I want to earn a career in F1. So far this year I couldn’t have asked for any more.

"I’ve settled into the environment really quickly and I feel comfortable straight away being here. I’m enjoying every minute.

"I’ve been welcomed into the team and felt at home straight away - I think that’s why the results so far have been strong."
