lthough initially delayed arriving at Jerez for the first two days of the Formula One's first winter test, Marussia unveiled their MR03 chassis late Thursday when second year F1 driver Max Chilton took the brand new racecar out for a 5-lap shakedown.

And this year's biggest difference for the Banbury-based squad is the switching of powerplant's from the ubiquitous 'Cossie lump to the red-headed Ferrari V-6 turbo, whilst the driver pairing is at least unchanged and perhaps this will be the year that Marussia finally scores ifs first Formula 1 world championship point?
