About Marussia F1 Team
Marussia F1 Team is a young and ambitious Anglo-Russian challenger
competing in the FIA Formula One World Championship.
Headquartered at the new Marussia Technical Centre in Banbury, UK, the
team is majority-owned by the Russian supercar marque, Marussia, based
With just two seasons of F1 competition under its belt, the team has
enjoyed an extraordinary journey. It was founded in 2009, under the
Resource Restriction Agreement that has redefined the sport’s commercial
landscape, paving the way for exciting new entrants to challenge
tradition and expectation. The Marussia F1 Team has been in the vanguard
of a new era of Formula One, harnessing the commercial firepower of Sir
Richard Branson’s Virgin group of companies, one of its founding
partners, to establish an innovative racing team concept for the future.
Technically, the team has experienced the rollercoaster ride that one
might expect from the initiation of a young new team into such a tough
and highly competitive sport. In only its second season however, with
ambitious targets for the future firmly in its sights, the team entered
into a long-term technical partnership with McLaren Applied
Technologies, which enables the Marussia F1 Team to benefit from access
to advanced facilities which are already helping the team produce a
competitive racing car for the 2012 season.
As for the team’s longer term ambitions, 2014 will see the introduction
of a Russian Grand Prix to the race calendar. It goes without saying
that success on home asphalt in the Black Sea resort of Sochi is the
end-game for the next exciting phase of the Marussia F1 Team journey.
