2013 Marussia MR02

The 2013 Marussia MR02 has a simple but sleek design. It is the first of Marussia’s race cars to have used KERS because of its performance advantage.

Through various partnerships with Williams Advanced Engineering, McLaren Applied Technologies and Xtrac, the MR02 showed a number of improvements in its overall design and handling that made it a favourable competitor for its debut season.

Driven by French (former) racing driver Jules Bianchi and British racing driver Max Clinton, the MR02 was successful in retaining the Marussia F1 Team’s position at the World Constructor Championships.
