THE Korean Grand Prix brought yet another double finish for Marussia Virgin Racing.
Drivers Timo Glock and Jérôme D’Ambrosio finished 18th and 20th respectively.
German ace Glock was delighted that he could go all out in his MVR-02 car from start to finish, after a disappointing set-up in the previous outing.
“It has been a good weekend for us,” he said.
“Strategy-wise I think we made the right choice. I had a very good car the whole race – very consistent to push until the last lap and all the problems that we thought we had before were less of an issue.”
“I had a lot of fun and could push until the end, until the last lap. We had a bit of a fight with HRT in the middle of the race, who were suddenly very quick, and I had to push more and more.”
“Overall I’m happy and got the maximum out of the car.”
Team boss John Booth was also pleased with Sunday’s result, and lauded the team’s effort.
The Laughton man said: “On the back of a disappointing weekend last week, everyone in the team stepped up their game for this weekend.”
“The strategy was improved, the pitstops were slick and all this has been borne out of a great deal of introspection and redoubling of effort for the last few races.”
Next up for the Dinnington F1 outfit is a trip to India for the first ever Grand Prix in New Delhi on 30th October.
Both admits everyone is excited by the prospect.
“We’ll be back in the UK this week preparing for the inaugural Indian Grand Prix and the whole team – from the engineers to logistics – are looking forward to the challenge of this voyage into the unknown.”
