The Marussia MR02 was a Formula One racing car entered by Marussia for the 2013 Formula One season. Officially unveiled on February 5th 2013 in Jerez, it was driven by F1 débutants, Max Chilton and Jules Bianchi.
The drivers for the 2013 season were originally supposed to be Timo Glock and Luiz Razia, but Glock left the team by mutual consent and Razia had his contract terminated due to sponsorship issues. They were replaced by Force India test driver Jules Bianchi and promoted Max Chilton from test driver to race driver.
Despite being among the slowest cars on the grid, the car proved to be highly reliable in the hands of Chilton, who finished every race in his début season. The team finished 10th in the Constructors' Championship ahead of Caterham, due to the team's highest finish (13th) at the Malaysian Grand Prix.
