Singapore GP practice quotes: Marussia

Max Chilton - 20th/21st: "I'm pretty pleased with how today has gone for me, though not as pleased as I would have been had we maintained position from this morning! Having said that, we're really close on lap time and we've done a lot of work with the car to be able to arrive at a good direction for tomorrow. We tried quite a few things and I think once we take all that into account to fine-tune the car, we'll be in reasonable shape for qualifying. Not a bad start really."

Jules Bianchi - 19th/22nd: "Today I got my very first taste of this track and the whole night race experience and I have to say it is pretty sensational. We had quite a big programme to get through and though we tried a lot of things to achieve the data, we lost the position advantage we had to Caterham in the first session, which is a bit of a shame. Nevertheless our times are very close considering I didn't manage to resolve the understeer issues this evening, so I'm feeling quite confident for tomorrow and that we can be in a good fight this weekend."

John Booth, Team Principal: "The whole Team enjoys the unique night race atmosphere here in Singapore and it is particularly special to capture the excitement of a driver discovering it for the first time. We were pleased to make such a promising start in Free Practice 1 and naturally hopeful we could maintain those positions into the second session. Although we ultimately lost out in terms of placings relative to the Caterhams, our times are really close, with all four cars within 0.3s of each other. We have quite a lot of work to do this evening after gathering quite a haul of information between the two sessions but we're confident that this will help us to make good progress for tomorrow. Fingers crossed, Singapore has been quite kind to us in the past and hopefully it will continue to shine its light on us again this weekend."
