2014 Bahrain: Marussia Formula One F1 Tuesday Test Recap

CHILTON MR03-02 P6/11 1:37.678

The opening day of running at the Bahrain Test saw Max Chilton in the MR03 (Chassis 02) for his one-day programme. The Marussia F1 Team made good progress working through its development checklist, with Max ending the day 6th out of the 11 drivers.

Max Chilton #4

"Generally we’ve had a positive day in which we’ve completed the programme and developed the car a further step in only a short space of time. We did have a hydraulics issue which stopped us for a while but this was fixed quite quickly and, in actual fact, the period for which we were confined to the garage was when the track was at its hottest. We were able to keep our tyres back until later in the day and make use of them when the track was a bit more usable and representative. I’m pleased with the timesheet at the end of the day, especially since there was room for improvement with my quick lap."

Dave Greenwood, Chief Engineer

"After such a positive outcome to the race on Sunday, Max was naturally keen to be back in the car as soon as possible and get into the testing items that will hopefully contribute to us maintaining the momentum in China next weekend. We have a comprehensive programme for this test, which began today with aerodynamic measurements and moved into set-up programmes exploring mechanical and aero changes. In the background we continued with mapping work and an evaluation of some revised parts for electronic reliability. Aside from a hydraulics issue, the first day has been productive and we look forward to continuing the progress with Jules tomorrow."
