Marussia are looking forward to see how much of an effect their new developments have, after spending almost three weeks away from the car.
Max Chilton: “After what will have been almost three weeks away from the car, I’m really looking forward to the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend. We have some interesting new developments and I can’t wait to see what these will bring. I’m sure Friday will be a very busy day of evaluation during the two free practice sessions, and of course there will be the chance to look at things a bit more closely after the race during the two-day test, so all in all we should leave Spain next week with a very good understanding of where we are.”
Jules Bianchi: “The first four circuits we have visited have all been quite different, and not so typical of the more traditional circuits we find on the European calendar, so it is always nice to get back to venues like Barcelona which we are a little more familiar with. This helps in terms of understanding the car a bit more. Having said that, this is not such a straightforward circuit; it’s quite bumpy and quite challenging to find a good set-up. Generally though, if we can get the car working well here, it is a good sign, especially with our new developments. It has been nice to have a break and take some time to consider the opening races, but now I am excited to get my teeth into the next phase of the season.”
