Marussia preparing to launch 2012 F1 car after first pre-season test

Marussia (Virgin Racing) is preparing to run 2012 F1 challenger at second pre-season teat at Barcelona, Spain. The technical consultant Pat Symonds told Autosport in an exclusive interview that revealing it will be virtually an all-new design from last year’s chassis

“We are aiming for the second [test],” explained Symonds. “We are going to be at the first test anyway because I think it’s important for Charles [Pic] to get some miles under his belt and it shakes some of the cobwebs off of the team.”

Symonds said that the new car design evolution there was very little carry over from the Virgin Racing car that raced 2011 season.

“You always carry over something, but I think we have probably carried over less than normal,” he said. “The whole of the suspension design is different, even the pedal assemblies are different. There is probably a smaller amount of carry over on this car than almost any car I have worked on.”

“I don’t think it is the time for us to be innovative,” he said. “When you are that far off the front it’s the time to really just do your job properly and to make sure that what you are doing you are doing well. So no real innovation, it’s much more about looking at each area and trying to improve each one.”
