Marussia are effectively a start up team from this year. They have carried over basically nothing.
Pat Symonds even said himself that he has never produced a car which has so little carry over.
Add in the fact that Marussia didn't part with Wirth until July, means that the small team had 5 months to design, manufacture and test a totally new car.
I think we can cut them a little slack - don't you?
