The Formula 1 European season begins! The 2013 F1 GRAN PREMIO DE ESPAÑA Grand Prix roars into life this coming weekend starting on Friday, 10th with the final race on Sunday, 12th May.

A home-away-from-home for most teams, the Circuit de Catalunya is a comfortable place for most drivers, being the grounds for pre-season testing of the cars.

The Marussia F1 Team will be looking to take advantage of this familiarity by using collected baseline data from completed races thus far, to further analyse their progress. Max Chilton and Jules Bianchi, official drivers for the team are eager to continue in the positive direction they have been developing with the team.

For Friday’s first Practice race, the MR02-03 that Max Chilton drives will be driven by Reserve Driver Rodolfo Gonzalez, joining forces with Jules Bianchi in the MR02-02. Max will return to the track for Practice 2.

After a good break from Bahrain and some time to catch up on their breath, let’s see where Barcelona will take the Marussia boys.
