In my view, thay had the best-looking car of 2012.
Now, they opt to produce one of the ugliest...
The livery, for starters, is ,quite simply, appaling IMO.

Whilst the car is visually very different from it's predcessor, the team won't be moving forward if, as rumoured, they hve ideed signed Razia...

Shame about the livery as I thought the 2012 one was great! I still think it's one of the best though.

I am quietly hopeful for Marussia and expect their best season yet, despite losing Glock. The rookie drivers roughly negate the advantage brought by KERS, but the aero work should gain them a few tenths. I expect the drivers to average +3.5/4.0sec off the pace this year. An improvement (and the best ever for Marussia) but still quite some way from points-scoring performance.

I just hope the drivers don't crash too much and incur expensive bills.

Interesting article on Autosport.com Marussia reckon they're in the best financial situation ever, is there any wonder when they've let Glock go... But the go on to say losing 10th didn't affect them too much. If that's the case they could have kept Glock, instead of two in experienced guys, and maybe improve on last year...

I agree with you about Glock. Firing him is a big mistake. Two rookie drivers with such limited testing, the situation isn't ideal. But the team looks more prepared than ever to take the fight to Caterham. Symonds will take the job done this year. As for the changes on the chassis, it looks simplier but they had to incorporate KERS this year so the decision was obvious.
