Marussia’s day begins just as Red Bull’s ends
The garage shutters were definitively pulled down
Hours after Marussia’s expected debut, the team’s 2014 car finally emerged from the Jerez pitlane late on Thursday afternoon.
Max Chilton was at the wheel of the mainly unsponsored, red and black liveried and Ferrari-powered MR03, which featured a tidy nose solution reminiscent of the front of the 2014 Red Bull.
And just as Marussia’s test day began on Thursday, world champions Red Bull’s ended.
At precisely 3pm in southern Spain, the garage shutters were definitively pulled down, and chiefs Christian Horner and Adrian Newey left the circuit after a miserable three days of running with the troublesome RB10.
In those three days of running, two with Sebastian Vettel and one with Daniel Ricciardo, the car has clocked up a disastrous haul of just 13 laps.
