Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton are determined to take only the positives to Korea as Marussia look for a two-car finish.

Jules Bianchi: "It was fantastic to experience the Singapore Grand Prix and my first night race last time out, although I have to say it was not the best track for me this year. I am hoping that Korea will suit the car better and I have been working hard in the simulator and with the engineers to prepare for this and the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka, which is a track I have been looking forward to. We have to keep pushing hard to take the positives from every situation and keep bringing home the two-car finishes. Let's hope for more of that this weekend."

Max Chilton: "I took a lot of positives away from my first night race in Singapore. Although Korea is a very different circuit, I feel there is a real momentum building now which I am obviously keen to maintain, so between the sim sessions, engineering meetings and my training, I'm feeling very focused. The Korea International Circuit marks another new experience. I understand the track to be quite slippery and the wide range of corners make it interesting to drive. I look forward to my first experience of it this weekend."

John Booth, Team Principal: "A little over a week since we headed home from Singapore, we find ourselves heading back in that direction to South Korea, for the first of two back to back races in that part of Asia. It's a tough schedule, but at least the cars and freight have continued on their own onward journey, which relieves some of the burden and leaves our personnel free to return home, even for just a short break or regroup with our factory-based colleagues. At the risk of sounding repetitive, our task in these remaining races really couldn't be clearer. We need to do everything possible to maintain our position, whilst capitalizing on tracks where we can be more competitive versus our nearest challengers. Singapore was one such race and there should be a few others in the six remaining."

Felipe Nasr and Valtteri Bottas head out to begin the fourth and final day
