"Max got a poor start and later in the race this was compounded by a problem during one of his three pit stops. He too drove a hard race to try to recover from his two setbacks and for much of the race his lap times were equal to those of his team-mate."
Max got caught by Jules who had a compromised race and I think excuses are excuses, I only wish the reliance wasn't so heavy on Chilton's funding, because he's looking to pan out (as I predict) like a under-quality racer. Still, he's grinning from ear to ear looking really smug with himself and his performance level, so as long as he's happy plodding along like Noddy thinking he's doing a good job, I'm happy to point out and laugh at really how below par he is. Still, I point to wondering what gain would have been made had Glock been in that seat, it's hurting Marussia like Caterham-they're relying on Kovalainen to wring out their performance package, Pic isn't up to scratch and VDG is even worse off. I really believe out of the new teams all rookies bar Bianchi are worthless. Bianchi I think looks like a saving grace, but I still would have put him a way behind Glock in terms out outright quality.
I couldn't see any visible updates although I'm told there were many including a new floor front wing, front suspension etc, not really seeing them on f1technical's website either, did anyone see what exactly these were? Because based on Caterhams drum beating, I was thinking Marussia were well and truly going to be left for dust, although I'm happy this isn't the case. Caterhams new nose is quite the redesign, which I find amazing for a small team 5 races in, if they can't get higher than 14th, it's going to hurt them greatly, I see Monaco, Singapore and Brazil as make or break, I don't see 14th the highest either team could do this year.....
