// Behind the Scenes at Marussia

Thursday morning we were invited to for a tour of the Marussia garage, and without hesitation we responded yes, looking forward to seeing the first behind the scenes look at the grand prix team.

Our guide for the morning was Mark Scudamore, a Marussia team member who was enthusiastic about showing us the inner workings of the team. We spoke first outside the garage, discussing the challenges of moving the team to Austin from Abu Dhabi, and the rapid learning curve of the new facility.
