turbof1: Also for the record, I'm against running a 2014 car among 2015 cars, which is outright dangerous. I however cannot blame Marussia for that since this was presented to them.
If they went through with new crash tests then it is not the 2014 car, just the 2014 chassis, most likely with a 2015 nose. They are not in the position to blow that much money on tests which were successfully completed a year before.
What I fail to see is how much more dangerous this car is vs. the rest of the field? The bulk head was dropped, but the major changes were to the nose (tested to 2015 specs) and the floor (they are allowed to use skids, these are not mandatory). I can't find the danger...
