2014 Silverstone: Marussia Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap

CHILTON MR03-03 P7 1:37.359 77 laps

The Marussia F1 Team completed its final day of running at Silverstone today, with Max Chilton posting the 7th fastest
time of Day Two, a 1:37.359, after completing 77 laps.

Over the course of the two days, the Team has completed 1090kms of running over 185 laps.

Max Chilton #4

"Today has been a really interesting and productive day. We’ve learned a lot about the car and explored quite a number of new set-up developments, which I’m sure will help us in the forthcoming races. The track has been really gusty today so we’ve had to pick our way quite carefully through the programme to ensure we were reading our progress correctly. It’s always nice to have a test day where you get the benefit of lots of tyres and are able to properly evaluate set-ups, something we don’t get enough time to do during a race weekend. I think we have made good progress and I look forward to seeing the benefit of that in Germany."

Dave Greenwood, Chief Engineer

"This has been an important test for us, falling as it does at the midpoint of the season. After yesterday’s tyre oriented programme, today has been more about a continuation of our set-up development work and also evaluating some systems which are pertinent to next year’s car design. Max has done a good job to drive the car consistently in what have been some very windy conditions. On a few occasions today we have had to check and recheck various set-ups because of the wind effect, however the mechanics did a good job to turn the car around quickly and we were able to complete a lot of runs whilst also gaining some useful overall mileage. It will be a busy couple of days in the engineering group to evaluate all the data we have gathered, particularly from today, and then prepare the set-ups for Germany, which will hopefully improve the performance of the car."
