I have to say its nice to see something about the 2014 Ferrari engine (if this is the one they will run next year) as both Mercedes and Renault have released sound clips and images for their engines but nothing from Ferrari.
Marussia didn’t have chassis problems they just failed the rear end crash test, plus the reason they also didn’t have months and months as they had to complete a move from sheffield and rehire a whole factory of staff so they have reasons if this happens next year then they have problems
Im with Keith on this, i seriously doubt pic’s parents have money trouble this close to the start of the year. The knew how much it would costs them back last november so they wouldnt have taken on such a financial burden if they couldnt come up trumps with the cash. Why risk getting a seat and then have the world know that you cant afford it.
Im not one for drivers paying for there seat but at a team like Marussia they need the cash espically as they lack any new major sponsors this year which is probably quite needed.
Is there actually any confirmation that wickens has been signed as a test driver yet? Doesnt make much sense when most of the seasons testing is already over.
Slight detour from topic but did anyone else hear that Marussia are the only otehr team to be running without the stepped nose this year?
I think Mercedes will top the table again but this is very dependent on the year the williams have, i think last year for them was a serious blip which wont be repeated this year.
I dont think red bull will dominate the season so much this year but they are still where i would put my money for the constructors.
Cosworth is a dying manufacturer and to be honest has lost its reputation, i think next year(2013) you wont see them in the sport and unless we get a wet race with a big crash they wont get any points this year however much i want Marussia to score some :)
What you also have to remember is that for a team of this size, who are commited to the RRA and are racing because of the RRA, spending the required money on KERs which is believed to be around £5-6million would not be the best way of trying to catch up with the back of the grid.
Yes HRT are going to have williams old kers system but they are in the same boat as Marussia, they need to find seconds not 5 tenths.
I think this is a sensible move for the team, i just hope the designers can actually design a car that Glock can attack with rather than fight.
