Marussia benefiting from collaboration with McLaren

marussia-logo-2-on-blsckMarussia’s technical collaboration with McLaren is continuing at full speed.

This is the claim of Auto Motor und Sport, reporting that the Russian supercarmaker’s F1 team is already working 80 hours a week in the McLaren wind tunnel.

That, in part, is due to McLaren working extensively in the state-of-the-art Toyota wind tunnel in Cologne this year, while Marussia also has access to the McLaren racing simulators.

As of the British GP at Silverstone, Marussia will finally enter the era of the ‘traffic light’ pitstop system, thanks to equipment developed and formerly used by McLaren.
