New wheels aligned for Jerez

CHARLES PIC: He'll be behind the wheel of a Caterham CT03 car in 2013.

ALAN BALDWIN

LONDON, England – Former Virgin Racing team Marussia and Malaysian-owned Caterham will show their 2013 Formula 1 cars ahead of the first pre-season test at Jerez.

Russian-licensed Marussia has announced that British rookie Max Chilton will be first to drive the MR02 2013 car.

The UK-based team has not revealed its second driver but speculation in Brazil suggests that country’s Luiz Razia is a keen favourite. He was GP2 runner-up in 2013 and has tested for  Virgin and Caterham.

HOPING FOR POINTS

Caterham has Charles Pic – the French former Marussia driver – behind the wheel of the CT03 car but also has no second driver yet.

It's hoped the new cars will bring in some points; neither team has scored a point in any of their past three seasons though Caterham managed a tight 10th at the end of 2012.

With Marussia's decision to run their new car in Jerez it means every team apart from Williams has unveiled its challengers before the testing starts. Williams will only reveal its machines in Barcelona on February  19 2013
