Sunday 24 August 2014. The Marussia F1 Team ended the opening race of the second half of the season with Max Chilton in 16th position and Jules Bianchi 18th, following a race of mixed fortunes.Amid controversy in the forward pack, QNET sponsored Marussia came out of yesterday’s Belgium Grand Prix with our driver Max Chilton in 16th place after gaining three positions.

“We’ve improved the car since Hungary and we are in a good place versus the teams around us, so this has enabled us to fight this weekend. That what is required now, to try to hold onto 9th place in the Constructors’ Championship. I’m pleased with how the
race panned out, especially taking Ericsson right at the end” says Max

Luck wasn’t with Marussia’s other driver Jules Bianchi. The Frenchman was hit from behind in the first turn of the race and was eventually forced to retire with suspected gearbox trouble.
