Marussia F1 team announced that 2012 F1 challenger passed final FIA crash test, now they are clear the all way of new season participate.
Marussia F1 technical consultant Pat Symonds said only small modifications were necessary to get the car through the test.
“After a challenging few weeks for the team, we are pleased to have overcome the last hurdle of the final FIA-observed crash test, which we passed today,” he said. “The component in question actually passed an ‘unobserved’ crash test but has been performing inconsistently in the observed tests.
“The previous fail was only marginal so we needed to have a slightly more robust solution in place. A few minor adjustments to the original concept of the component was all that was required.
“We were all thrilled to see the new car out on track over the past two days and whilst we have a lot of catching up to do, we take heart from the fact that everything is back on a more positive trajectory. We now look forward to the challenge of the season-opener in Melbourne next weekend.”
