Marussia MR01 2012

Driven by the experienced Timo Glock and newcomer Charles Pic in 2012, the Marussia F1 Team’s MR01 helped the team move ahead of HRT and challenge Caterham for 10th-place in the Constructors’ Championship, eventually losing out in the final race.

This was the first car designed by the new in-house team at the Team’s Banbury Technical Centre after previous seasons focusing predominantly on Computational Fluid Dynamics. The car proved to be very reliable, and this was key to helping the Team take the fight to the Caterham-Renault team. Using the Cosworth 90° V8 customer engine, the Marussia F1 Team also decided to run without KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) instead channeling all its resources into aerodynamic developments in a strategy which the team felt would yield the greater gains. This led some pundits to believe the Marussia F1 Team had the better chassis overall.

The MR01 finished in 12th-place in both Singapore and Brazil, and between both drivers only failed to finish six races. The team finished in 11th-place in the Constructors’ Championship.
