It has been a challenging few weeks for QNET partners, Marussia F1. But the team and drivers TimoGlock and Charls Pic have overcome some hurdles and are as ready as ever to compete in what promises to be an amazing season of racing.

Going into the race, Timo has not had as much practice time in the new MR01 car as he had hoped; “Melbourne will be a bit of a voyage into the unknown but we have nothing to lose and I’m even more excited than usual to see how the car feels in Friday’s first free practice.” Teammate Charles Pic has never been to Melbourne but is also looking forward to this weekend, “I’m ready to go racing now. I have been working very hard physically and with the team, and mentally I am prepared”.

Although QNET has been with the team over the past two seasons, this is the first season under the new name of Marussia F1 Team. And what a huge season it’s shaping up to be. There are six world champion drivers among this year’s field. The first race of the season is one to watch and the Australian GP is always a special race, “Albert Park is a great track and I love going there for the first race of the season”, Timo says.

GO Marussia F1! GO Timo and Charles! And GO QNET! We will be cheering you on while we watch all the action from Melbourne, starting this Friday.
