Marussia are looking to "continue to take positive steps forward" as they head to Shanghai with minor updates for their MR01.
Having failed to put their 2012 out on track during pre-season testing, Marussia have started this year's Championship on the back foot.
The team, though, is determined to make up ground, confident their Chinese "refinements" will be another step towards their first F1 point.
"Our objective now is to maintain the momentum, so it has been full steam ahead in terms of our development programme," said Booth.
"The starting point for that was the significant amount of data we had been able to gather in Melbourne and Sepang and while the race team have had the chance for some rest during the break, it has been quite the opposite for the technical team back in Banbury, who have been evaluating our findings and feeding them back into the cycle, including the continuation of our wind tunnel programme.
"We have some aerodynamic and systems refinements for the MR01 in China, ahead of a more substantial upgrade for the start of the European season next month."
Timo Glock, who is still seeking his first World Championship point as a Marussia driver, added: "It's nice to have had a break as it gave us some time to go through the vast amount of data we got in quite a short space of time with the new car.
"This gives us the opportunity to try some new things for China and, hopefully, continue to take positive steps forward. I like this race so I'm looking forward to it and to seeing where we stand next weekend."
