C.Pic
Marussia announced French talent Charles Pic to race for the team in 2012 alongside Germany's Timo Glock. The 21-year-old spent the equivalent of two days in the 2011 MVR-02 race car working through a detailed evaluation programme at the Young Driver Test in Abu Dhabi in November of 2011. His opening lap was his first-ever experience of a Formula 1 car and he went on to impress the team with his solid progression through a series of tests designed to examine every aspect of a driver's all-round potential, including raw speed, decision-making, quality of feedback and the ability to contribute to the team's ongoing development. Pic has spent the past two seasons competing in the Formula 1 feeder championship, GP2 Series, and in 2011 he ended the year in fourth place with two wins, three pole positions and five podium finishes. From 2008-2009 he raced in the World Series by Renault FR 3.5 championship and during the preceding two years he graduated from Karting to the French Formula Campus championship before going on to take part in the French and European championships of Formula Renault 2.0.
