It's strange. When you compare Caterham and Marussia, aerodynamically the CT03 is clearly a more complex design and seems much more refined (looks like a modern F1 car to me), and yet they dont seem to have any pace.
Just because it is complex doesnt make it better. imo Caterham barely understood their car and therefore run with the same tub as last year.
On the other hand Marussia has a simpler car which they can actually understand, and with that can develop it better.

Marussia has a new tub, Caterham has not.
