Marussia early confirmed that they will not repeat the 2012 F1 car debut delay, 2012 first pre-season test at Jerez, Marussia participate with 2011 machine due to MVR-02 failed to pass some of the compulsory crash tests.

Now the to team principal Graeme Lowdon says that Marussia MVR-03 is now schedule for first pre-season test at Jerez on February 5 and also he give thanks to the new technical structure put in place following the depart of Nick Wirth.

“It’s on target at the moment, and in fact some bits are ahead,” Lowdon told Autosport.

“We’ve got a high degree of confidence. We’ve got a totally different structure now.

“This will be our first car that’s truly our car in terms of the new people involved. The car we’ve just finished with was a full CFD car when we hit the first race.”

In the final race at Brazil Caterham grabbed 10th place from Marussia. Caterham, Marussia and HRT finished with empty points this season; finally Caterham set tenth in the Constructors’ Championship is worth in excess of $10 million for the lucky team.

Following the Singapore Grand Prix Marussia holding the tenth place in constructors’ championship, but Caterham finally finished high enough to clinch that all important position in the Championship.

“I definitely think this is a top 10 team. We didn’t have a top 10 car, and that’s something that takes time and money, look at Brazil, Timo’s fastest stop was faster than all the stops McLaren did. People don’t notice that kind of thing, but we’ve now got a very, very good team. A really good structure, very tight-knit and a very low cost base. “Lowdon said.

“If we have a car that’s capable of quicker laptimes, which is the other piece of the jigsaw – and everything I’ve seen is that next year’s car is going to be a really good car – then you can’t write this team off. I’m perfectly happy to call this team a top 10 team even if the results don’t show it. I’m looking forward to Melbourne.”
