Marussia to debut new car at Jerez

31 January 2013

The Marussia F1 team has announced that it will unveil its 2013 F1 car, the MR02, at the start of next week.

The 'launch' will take place at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain on Tuesday, February 5, immediately ahead of the first day of pre-season testing. The new car will be revealed to the media in the pit lane at 08.15 hours CET. Max Chilton, currently the teams only confirmed driver, is scheduled to be first behind the wheel.

Marussia is the last of the teams to set a launch date for its new car, although it won't be the last to start running with its 2013 car, as Williams have decided to wait until the second winter test to debut the FW35.
