Marussia test debut delayed by technical glitch

27 Jan 2014

Marussia’s 2014 car will make its test debut at Jerez later this week after a last-minute problem was discovered at the team’s UK factory.

On Tuesday morning the Banbury-based team confirmed that they’d resolved a ‘small but frustrating technical issue’ which had delayed the MR03’s arrival in Spain, and announced that the car was now on route to the circuit from the UK. A revised testing plan for the remainder of the four-day test will be released on Wednesday.

The MR03, Marussia’s first Ferrari-powered car, will be raced this season by the team’s unchanged driver line-up of Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton.
