Marussia preview the Brazil GP

Marussia preview the Brazil GP

Marrussia are confident of holding on the 10th place in the Constructors' Championship ahead of the final race of the 2013 season...

Jules Bianchi: Wow, the last race of the season already. Time certainly flies when you're having fun. The last race in Austin didn't start out with much fun but on Sunday we really brought it all together and that performance has given us all a real lift for the final round in Brazil, where there will be a lot of pressure. We've done such a great job holding on to 10th place in the Championship for so long, so it's hard to imagine any other outcome than seeing the Team achieve what they deserve finally. The weather forecast looks interesting so we'll need to be on our toes, but we are very good at making our strategy work as well as responding to events in the races at short notice. One thing is for certain, we'll be giving it everything we've got this weekend.

Max Chilton: It's hard to believe that the final race of the year is upon us. There's so much to look back on, to learn from and savour but for now we have to keep looking ahead and stay focused on what's at stake this weekend. Brazil was the scene of so much disappointment last year and as Reserve Driver for the Team I saw that first hand. I think we can all be proud that we have held 10th place all season so that's what everyone has in their sights. Interlagos is another great circuit that I will relish driving for the first time, but I think the expected wet weather will make it a less than straightforward weekend up and down the field.

John Booth: After an ultimately rewarding United States Grand Prix, we head to Brazil feeling confident but with a very clear focus on what we need to do this weekend. Everyone's attentions are on what is at stake, but we shouldn't forget just how far we have come to be able to maintain 10th place in the Constructors' Championship for the whole season. That in itself is a big achievement, as is the excellent reliability we have shown this year, with Max completing every race so far. Our most recent developments have contributed significantly in enabling us to keep up the fight with Caterham to the last and the evidence of this was clear to see in the race in Austin. We just need to squeeze out every last drop from the package this weekend and hope for better luck than last year.
