Marussia are the last team of 2012 to show off their 2012 car, called the MR01.

Like HRT, Marussia failed the FIA crash tests, meaning they could not take part in pre-season testing. However, they used today’s launch to get some track time as part of a promotional event.

The MR01 marks Marussia’s first attempt at using a wind tunnel to build their car, after the disaster of their CFD approach over the last 2 years.

As rumours anticipated, the car has followed McLaren’s lead in not using the stepped nose design.
