Max Chilton completed his seat fitting for Marussia's 2013 contender last weekend, having made a visit to the team's factory in Banbury. For the first time since joining the sport back in 2010, the outfit will be racing with the benefit of KERS.
Chilton, who steps up to Formula 1 after finishing fourth in the 2012 GP2 standings, believes the addition of KERS and the input of former Renault engineering chief Pat Symonds should allow the team to make a significant step forward this season.
"KERS in itself would put us further up the grid and if we’re having the car they say we will then it’s going to be a very promising year," the Briton explained to GPUpdate.net during the late stages of development. "Pat seems to think we’ve found a lot."
A launch date for the latest Marussia design is yet to be confirmed, while the identity of Chilton's team-mate for the 2013 campaign is unclear after Timo Glock's exit.
