Shannon. well, I reckon any f1 fan would hope that the team can survive, so I guess you are not a real fan?.
marussia maybe a tail ender, but at least they are trying and have managed to stick one to caterham, for whom, many thought would be the one team to make progress. it would be interesting to see how a Ferrari engine would help marussia. for many years, minardi were the backmarker, but they kept plugging on, and brought many talents into f1. and we miss their enthusiasm now!

Totally agree with your Richard. Not all drivers are born into a top level team like LH. Many great drivers came through lower rung or mid field teams teams. FA, MW, Kimi, MS, and DH just to name a few. The lower run teams seem to always be more relax and joke more too. I miss the days when teams would pull more stunts.

If Bernie really does want to cut F1 back to just 10 teams then one of the teams will have to go. I think Caterham will likely be the ones to fold first so hopefully Marussia will become more competitive or they will just be grid fillers.

For the spectator's it doesn't matter they have Ferrari and Mercedes power, I suspect it won't change that they will be at the back of the field. The only thing I hope Bianchi won't be with the team next year. That would be a waste of his talent.

either engine choice has got to be better than cosworth for them. theyve done better than caterham have managed this season with a smaller budget and a weaker engine. i hope they manage to keep 10th this year and get some prize money to fund next years car.
