Cosworth Congratulates Marussia Virgin Racing on Today’s Announcement
Cosworth Group would like to extend its congratulations to Marussia Virgin Racing following this morning’s announcement of its long-term Technical Partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies and acquisition of the Formula One business of WRT.
As a result of this tie-in, Cosworth is looking forward to working with Marussia Virgin Racing and McLaren Applied Technologies to optimise the benefits of this new partnership and help the Anglo-Russian team achieve its goals in Formula One. Cosworth has worked with Marussia Motors on its road car programme since September 2009, and was instrumental in introducing the company into its initial partnership with Virgin Racing.
Cosworth is therefore pleased to be part of this exciting new phase of the Marussia Virgin Racing programme, announced ahead of the ‘home’ Grand Prix at Silverstone this weekend for both Cosworth and the team.
Cosworth’s General Manager F1 Business Unit, Mark Gallagher commented:
“Cosworth is looking forward to a close working partnership with Marussia Virgin Racing and its new supplier McLaren Applied Technologies to ensure a highly competitive, fully integrated powertrain solution for the team moving forward. Today’s announcements show the team’s firm intent to make progress up the grid and Cosworth is pleased to be playing such a key part in the next exciting chapter of Marussia Virgin Racing.”
