They even did 2 chassis is 2010 after the well publicised "miscalculation" on the fuel tank size.
I think they have come a long way since those days, and was really impressed with their progress last year.
I would love to see Marussia be the first of the 2010 entry teams to score a point, particularly after Bernie hasn't offered them a new Concorde and Charles Pic gave away their 10th place in the constructors in Brazil.

I have always been a Caterham fan (of the new teams) but after last years promise of catching the midfield and not really being any closer, I was extremely impressed with Marussia's improvement. I feel with KERS and access to a decent wind tunnel, they can pass Caterham and catch the points.
GO MARUSSIA, GO MAX.

Still don't understand why they are pursuing with there own development of the gearbox which has been troublesome since 2010. I expected a gearbox deal with williams to be announced along with KERS.

With rules stability comes a closing of the field, as those with slower cars have more to gain. So with the gap between Caterham and Marussia set to decrease (especially after the transition year of 2012 as Marussia abandons its CFD-only program) then that can only be better for Marussia. Don't forget we are into the off-season, giving Marussia plenty of time to make up gaps. And more importantly - a lot of teams are, IMO beginning to plateau in terms of the possibilities of the current set of regs.
