US GP preview quotes: Marussia

Jules Bianchi: "I'm really looking forward to the next two - the final two, actually - Grands Prix of my debut season. We are in a strong position to achieve our objectives and we are all firmly focused on what needs to be done. From the work in the simulator and having been to the Circuit of the Americas last year, the track is fantastic and Austin is a lot of fun, so a good place to begin our final push. Every now and then I get the chance to look back and think how quickly my first season of F1 has passed by, so I will take some time to savour Austin and Brazil and hope for a positive end to 2013."

US GP preview quotes: Marussia

Max Chilton: "I shared the experience of the inaugural United States Grand Prix with the Team last year in my role as Reserve Driver and it was great to see just how much Austin had put into welcoming F1 back to America. The reception we all received from the fans was fantastic and the track looked awesome, so I'm really happy that I will finally get the chance to drive there next weekend. I've been on the simulator this week for some final preparation and we've done a lot of work evaluating the issues from the race in Abu Dhabi, so I think we are as prepared as we can be for whatever challenges the final two races throw at us."

John Booth, Team Principal: "We enjoyed every minute of our United States Grand Prix experience in Austin last year and the Circuit of the Americas provided a fantastic racing experience for the drivers, the engineers and the fans. We've had a few days since Abu Dhabi to take a proper in-depth look at some of the issues we experienced there last weekend and we have some solutions in place to ensure we can attack the final two races with rather more confidence. I think we have some strong developments in hand at present, but the challenge as always is to do the homework necessary to understand them thoroughly and utilise them effectively to extract more performance from the overall package. I hope we will be in a better position to do just that in Austin and Brazil."

OPINION: The British Grand Prix is a home event for Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, with their Mercedes team based just a few miles away too.
