Marussia are looking for another two-car finish through Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton at Suzuka.


Jules Bianchi: "I am very much looking forward to my first experience of racing here at Suzuka. It is a track that is associated with some of the greatest moments in Formula 1 history and racing here will be one of the highlights of my debut season, regardless of the outcome. It is also a real test of car and driver with some fantastic corners, which I have only ever been able to sample on the simulator until now. I think that rain is possible early in the weekend, which should make life interesting - much like some of the big moments I saw here when I was growing up - but I think it may be dry later on, which will enable us to keep pushing for our season objective. I love Japan and have spent the past few days training and relaxing in Tokyo, which has been good fun. I can't wait to be driving in front of the incredible fans here on Sunday."

Max Chilton: "It's great to be back in Japan and to finally get the opportunity to race at the Suzuka Circuit. I came straight here from Korea so I would have the opportunity to explore a little more because there are so many fantastic things to experience here. This will be another new challenge and one that I have been looking forward to because it is such a technical circuit and because of all the history attached to it. I have been inspired by some of the great battles I have watched here over the years. The fans are also pretty special, both in and out of the circuit. Seeing them camped outside the drivers' hotel is quite something, never mind the reception we get when we're out on track. I hope we can race to a strong two-car finish again - and hopefully with less attrition up ahead."

John Booth - team principal: "This weekend represents another interesting challenge for our drivers in that neither Jules nor Max has driven at Suzuka previously. Technically it is one of the more challenging and interesting circuits, so they'll start the weekend with maximum track time to help bring them up to speed. It has been raining heavily at the circuit today but our forecast suggests this won't be the case come Saturday and Sunday, so I hope we can enjoy conditions more conducive to achieving our objectives this weekend."
