Marussia on track for Thursday debut

The newly Ferrari-powered car was finally making its way from the UK to Jerez.

Jan.29 (GMM) Marussia is on course to debut its 2014 car on Thursday.

On Tuesday, having delayed the launch of the MR03 due to minor technical trouble, the team said the newly Ferrari-powered car was finally making its way from the UK to Jerez.

With some trucks and personnel already at the southern Spanish test track, Marussia's race team and Ferrari support crew arrived at Jerez on Wednesday morning.

And the new car is not far behind.

"The truck and car are making great progress -- should be here mid to late afternoon," Marussia said on Twitter. "So a busy night ahead to prepare ourselves for its debut."
