Marussia F1 Team
The team enters its third year in Formula One with a new name following Russian sportscar manufacturer Marussia Motors' acquisition of a significant stake in the team towards the end of 2010. The team made great strides during its inaugural season in 2011 and 2010 and will be looking to make more progress as 2012 develops.
Nikolay Fomenko: "All of us at Marussia Virgin Racing are looking forward to continuing our relationship with Cosworth going into our second season in Formula One. We certainly benefited from our partnership with Cosworth last season and we both learned a lot, which we hope to apply this year. Together with Cosworth we have looked at new areas of performance to develop in 2011, and we have started a number of new activities which I am sure will benefit our performance and reliability this season"
