Marussia have finally broken cover after failing their crash tests at a promotional day at Silverstone, while HRT confimred (but have yet to have photo confirmation) that they will be doing a filming day today at Barcelona. Under the FIA rules teams are allowed for 100km at a limited amount of events for filming and promotional reasons, however they are only allowed to run on special Pirelli demo rubber. But it allows the teams to check the cars over.
The Marussia car features a similar livery to last year with still the same colour scheme and Virgin sponsorship. The car doesn’t feature a stepped nose or a droopy McLaren nose. It looks quite nice from this angle, it will be interesting if its any faster than last years challenger?
