Marussia heading to Moscow for demo run
10 July 2012 – The Marussia F1 Team will be performing a special demonstration run in Russia this weekend, with the now annual Moscow City Racing event taking place from 14-15 July. Charles Pic will get behind the wheel of a modern Formula 1 machine in front of the famous Kremlin, before signing autographs and posing for photographs with fans.
"I’m really excited to be heading to Russia for the first time; it should be quite an experience," Pic, who is racing alongside Timo Glock in his debut season, explained ahead of the event. "The team have told me what a fantastic reception they had from the Russian fans in Sochi last year and it sounds like awesome fun to drive the car through the streets of Moscow.
"It is quite a busy programme of driving the car and promotional activities, but with some time to explore fascinating places like The Kremlin. As one of the drivers of the only Anglo-Russian F1 team, I can’t wait to meet the fans and give them a taste of Formula 1 before the team races at what will be its new home Grand Prix in 2014."
Pic's highest finish to date is 15th, a result he achieved in Melbourne and Valencia.
