French driver Charles Pic has parted company with Caterham.

Team Principal Cyril Abiteboul confirmed the news on French television on Monday.

"Unfortunately Charles won't be with us next season. It's a pity that the adventure between Caterham and Charles is ending. On a personal level I want to thank Charles for the work he achieved last year," Abiteboul told Infosport+.

Pic, 23, began his Fomula 1 career with Marussia in 2012 before joining Caterham the following year.

Abiteboul said that Pic, who has not scored a point in two seasons, "has some talent which can develop in a more important, mature team."

In two seasons, Pic competed in 38 Grands Prix, with his best finish a 12th in Brazil in 2012 with Marussia.

Japan's Kamui Kobayashi, formerly of Sauber, who did not have a drive last season, is favourite to replace Pic.

Caterham are the only F1 team still to confirm their line-up for the new season, but an official announcement is expected on Tuesday morning.
