Marussia rescheduling reveals 2012 car

Marussia recently rescheduling that 2012 F1 car begin until the last pre-season test in Barcelona, Marussia told GPupdate.net 2012 F1 car reveal planning have changed.

“We have taken the decision today that we will not attend the first test in Jerez, taking place from 7-10 February,” Team Principal John Booth told GPUpdate.net. “We had been looking to take part in that test with the 2011 MVR-02 for the purpose of providing Charles (Pic) with some valuable running to assist with the preparation for his debut season. This was with a view to introducing the new car, the MR01, at Barcelona two weeks later.

“Whilst this is not ideal, and not the timescale we had intended to work to, we will at least get some important running with the new car ahead of Australia and hopefully gain more constructive track time than we might otherwise have achieved, had we rushed the car out for the second test,” he concluded.

“As our Technical Consultant Pat Symonds has stated publicly, the MR01 will be almost entirely ‘new’, with very little carryover from 2011. The new car also has some interesting and complex mechanical concepts and it is taking time for us to get to grips with these.

“Unfortunately our programme has slipped and there seems little point in fielding the new car before we can optimise the run plan for it. For that reason we have decided to commence our on-track testing by attending the second test in Barcelona with the MVR-02. We then aim to introduce the MR01 at the third test in Barcelona on 1 March.”
