Marussia preview the Monaco GP

Marussia preview the Monaco GP

Jules Bianchi is looking forward to taking part in his 'home race', while his team-mate Max Chilton believes Monaco is the most challenging of all the F1 circuits.

Jules Bianchi:"The Monaco Grand Prix is always very special, not least because it is really my home race. It is also nice to go there feeling optimistic for a positive result. We made some good improvements with our package during the test in Spain and I left there knowing that there was even more to come, so I am excited for the weekend. There is no track quite like Monaco. It's a very distinctive challenge and extremely demanding; a real test of the driver. Last year I had a few problems and could not complete the race. I'm hoping for better things this time around and for the Team to be able to show more of the progress we have made."

Max Chilton: "Next to my home race at Silverstone, there's no better atmosphere than at the Monaco Grand Prix; it's electric. It's perhaps the most demanding race on the calendar, but at the same time, a fantastic experience from start to finish and I really enjoy the track's unique challenges. Last year I secured my best result of the season here, so I'll be hoping for more of the same, if not better. We had a really good test last week and the progress was clear to see. Although we aren't expecting the timesheets to read in quite the same way as the Barcelona test, what we can be encouraged by is the work we have done to improve the set-up of the car and we can now translate those improvements through to the next events, to help us achieve a realistic next step over the course of a race weekend."
