Unluckily, a loose tyre bounced onto the Marussia car driven by Max Chilton. Thankfully our Max was unharmed however the car suffered major front-end damage.

Marussia’s other driver Max feared better because we was ahead of the crash and able to restart in 10th position after the crash.
“From 10th place at the restart I had a very enjoyable opening stint. I knew I wouldn’t be able to hold off the faster cars behind me but it was a good test of our pace as to how long I could keep them behind and this was a fun part of the race for me. After that I just had
to push as hard as I could to stay with the pack in case any opportunity arose. What we did see today is that all we need is just a few more tenths a lap to allow us to keep pace with the Lotus and Sauber cars, so we have to focus now on finding that extra time,” shared Jules.
Both cars finished the race with Jules and Max in position 14 and 16 respectively. But now our team turns its attention to the German Grand Prix in a fortnight’s time.
