Marussia preview the Chinese GP

After a good race in Bahrain, Max Chilton is looking forward to racing in Shanghai for the second time in his career, while Jules Bianchi hopes that his run of bad luck comes to an end in China.

Max Chilton: "There has literally been no let-up over the past couple of months and here we are again, heading off to the next race in China, just a few days after returning from Bahrain. I really enjoyed my first taste of the Shanghai International Circuit last year; it's a nice challenge and the weather often throws up a few opportunities, particularly in the race. I left Bahrain on a real high and I hope we can enjoy a similarly strong race this weekend and maintain what feels like a bit of an advantage over our nearest competitors at the moment."

Jules Bianchi: "I am hoping all my bad luck is behind me now and that China will mark a turning point for a better rest of the season. If we look at the positives, there have been good signs that we have been able to raise our performance level and have a few interesting battles in the races; I hope we can enjoy a few more in Shanghai this weekend. The test ran smoothly in Bahrain last week and I think this will help us with our preparations this week as we are finding out lots of new things about the package all the car and getting strong all the time. I like the track and am looking forward to the final long haul race before we get back to Europe."
