Chilton excited to see what Malaysia brings
26 March 2014 – Marussia’s Max Chilton is expecting to see the first signs of progress from the team this weekend in Malaysia.
Chilton maintained his unbroken run of race finishes in Australia two weeks ago and while he was only 13th and last at the end, losing time at the start, after his car cut out prior to the formation lap, he was still encouraged.
“I left Melbourne feeling pretty positive about our 2014 debut,” said the Brit ahead of round two at the Sepang International Circuit. “We have a few things to iron out to give ourselves a better run at qualifying and the race, but I’m confident that we will see the first signs of progress with that this weekend in Malaysia.
“Our early level of reliability is quite encouraging and we’ve had two cars’ worth of data from the race to work with to really help us to troubleshoot our systems, so there are some really good signs at this stage.
"We still have some way to go to be able to gauge the true performance level of the car and we need to keep making steady in-roads into that to ensure we maintain a good direction. [But] I’m excited to see what Malaysia will bring,” he concluded.
