Jules Bianchi in 2013 Winter Testing

Marussia in Formula One Winter Testing 2013

Marussia have had a difficult period between the 2012 and 2013 seasons, announcing Timo Glock was remaining with them, then he left because of the need for sponsorship, to be replaced by Luiz Razia, who did not bring the sponsorship that was hoped, and who in return was replaced by Jules Bianchi.

The new MR02 was out on circuit with Bianchi, and with fellow rookie, British driver Max Chilton, who will also make his Formula One debut in Melbourne. The team need good results from these two new drivers, will not have the benefit of an experienced driver to support them. I wish them all the best, after the demise of HRT last year, and hope that we see the Marussia team competing in many years to come.
