Apparently they only had £2000 to spend improving the car between Spain and Monaco. An ill divided World when you think there is one F1 member who probably spent more than that grooming his dog over the last week.

Well done Marussia at least your money is well spent.

This is probably the best news of the weekend. Not only first points, but jumped up to 9th in the constructors right now. IMHO Jules is waiting for that Ferrari seat for 2016 when either KR says he's had enough and calls it or if FA jumps to RBR or Merc.

Definitely a great story, and an inspired drive from Bianchi. However I do feel for Kobayashi, who had his car damaged from contact with Jules during the overtake. Now don't get me wrong, I don't think it was a dirty move, just a nice and cheeky, opportunistic pounce so well done to Jules but unfortunate for Kamui.

Thing is though, I like and rate them both and to be honest, think of what could have been. Wouldn't it have been brilliant to see the two of them battling for both teams' first points throughout the second part of the race, only for a late retirement to reward them both with points?

Ericsson didn't do too badly yesterday either and it looks like he might be getting to grips with things too. It looks like Bianchi vs the Caterhams for the rest of the year

Taz: Show's how utterly dreadful Sauber's season is. They are in for a Williams 2013 years by the looks of it. No Hulk to do something a bit special.

Looks even worse than the 2013 Williams season. They've not got an extremely talented pair of drivers unlike in 2012 with Kobayashi-Perez. At least Williams had one talented driver in the form of Valtteri Bottas in 2013. On top of this, the Sauber seems to fail somehow at every race. They may in fact finish behind Marussia if Marussia's car improves even more.
