Marussia confirms they will test new car at Jerez 22 January, 2014 Marussia have confirmed that they will be present and testing their new car, the MR03, at next week’s pre-season test in Spain. The team will also unveil their new Ferrari-powered MR03 at Jerez, with Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton expected to be on duty during the four days, starting 28 January. The news means that Lotus, and possibly McLaren, will not be present at Jerez, although the Woking outfit is more than likely to be present since passing the mandatory FIA crash tests and firing up the MP4-29 yesterday.
