Marussia with 'spring in step' for Canada
4 June 2014 – John Booth has reiterated his hope that Marussia can underline its recent performance increment with another strong race in Canada.
Booth was delighted after Jules Bianchi claimed the team's first ever points in Formula 1 in Monaco, but admits he is not expecting a repeat this weekend at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. He does, however, expect Bianchi and Max Chilton to build on what has been achieved in the last month or so.
"As you might imagine, we head to Canada with a definite spring in our step after achieving our first points finish in Monaco," said Booth, Marussia's Team Principal. "It was an important milestone for everyone in the Team and provides an important affirmation, internally and externally, of the positive trajectory we are taking in pursuit of our longer term ambitions."
"Canada is one of our favourite racing destinations, although not necessarily a track that has suited us in the past. It will be interesting to see how well the set-up developments that worked so well for us in Spain and Monaco will translate to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve," he added.
"[Furthermore] while we are not expecting to replicate our success in Monaco, we are hopeful that we can further underline our recent performance increment with another strong race for both drivers."
