Marussia pass final crash test | Planet F1 | Formula One News

The team were unable to take part in pre-season testing after they only managed to pass 17 of the 18 compulsory tests.
On Monday the team finally lifted the lid on the MR01 at Silverstone and it has now been confirmed that they can head to Australia for the season-opening GP having ticked all of the FIA's boxes.
"After a challenging few weeks for the team we are pleased to have overcome the last hurdle of the final FIA-observed crash test, which we passed today," said Marussia technical consultant Pat Symonds.
"The component in question actually passed an unobserved crash test, but has been performing inconsistently in the observed tests.
"The previous fail was only marginal so we needed to have a slightly more robust solution in place.
"A few minor adjustments to the original concept of the component was all that was required.
"We were all thrilled to see the new car out on track over the past two days and whilst we have a lot of catching up to do, we take heart from the fact everything is back on a more positive trajectory.
"We now look forward to the challenge of the season-opener in Melbourne next weekend."
