Cosworth welcomes Virgin announcements

Cosworth welcomes Virgin's new partnership with McLaren and the purchase of WRT
Engine supplier Cosworth has welcomed the announcement that Marussia Virgin Racing is to enter into a long-term technical partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies.

The deal will allow the Manor Motorsport-run team to benefit from McLaren's expertise and facilities as it seeks to make forward progress up the F1 pecking order.

As well as the tie-up with McLaren, Marussia Virgin Racing has also acquired the technical centre of former technical partner Wirth Research having split with Nick Wirth last month.

“Cosworth is looking forward to a close working partnership with Marussia Virgin Racing and its new supplier McLaren Applied Technologies to ensure a highly competitive, fully integrated powertrain solution for the team moving forward,” Cosworth's Mark Gallagher said.

“The announcements show the team's firm intent to make progress up the grid and Cosworth is pleased to be playing such a key part in the next exciting chapter of Marussia Virgin Racing.”
