Marussia MR02 Cosworth

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Everyone has different tastes, but I think the livery is fooling with your eyes.

Well, with Marussia appearing to be quicker than Caterham so far it goes to show how important it is to get a big name engineer on board!!! Pat Symonds was a bit of a score for this minnow of a team!!

Hope this team gets a proper engine for next year if they have the cash for it.

Mike? You mean Gascoyne? He's the head of Caterham Technology I believe and has stepped back from the F1 programme.

In my opinion Marussia is looking good and faster than Catherham which got me impressed by the work they have done. Hopefully the pieces they have for the next week of testings and Australia can make a big improvement and be around 2'5s from the heading part.

Mark Smith is also a pretty big name designer at Caterham.
