Marussia approaches 50th grand prix

For rookie team-mate Pic, meanwhile, next weekend will bring a first chance to drive an F1 car in anger at possibly the most challenging circuit on the current schedule, and the Frenchman admits that he cannot wait to get out on track.

“I ended the first part of the season on a strong note, partly due to the team's improved performance, and satisfied with my progress so far in my debut season," he reflected, "The break has given me time to reflect on those eleven races, which seemed to pass by so quickly, and my plan is to consolidate everything I have learned from the team and the car and wrap it all together to have what I hope will be an even stronger second part of the year.

"The summer holiday has also been good for all of the Marussia F1 team and everyone seems refreshed and buzzing with enthusiasm for the next nine races, most of which are overseas, so it will be a busy time. Spa is a fantastic circuit, so I can't wait to be back racing there next weekend. The whole experience is very challenging for a driver; the circuit has such a special atmosphere because of its heritage. I'm looking forward to racing there in a F1 car for the first time and picking up where we left off in Hungary.”

I take my hat off to these small teams to turn up every weekend knowing they are just going to be at the back and very little chance of improving on that to stay motivated and not give up takes some stamina good on you boys!!!!
