Manor Marussia team principal John Booth says the squad can be proud of its efforts after the first four 'flyaway' races of the campaign.

Manor Marussia put together a last-minute rescue deal just a few weeks before the start of the season and ran for the first time in Malaysia before achieving a two-car finish in both China and Bahrain.

"After a really smooth weekend here in Bahrain, another two car finish is exactly how we wanted to close out the first round of long haul races," Booth said.

"That achievement really cannot be underestimated when you see the difficulties being experienced up and down the pit lane through the weekend."

Booth says that the three week gap before the Spanish Grand Prix will allow the team to head into the European season in a stronger position.

"So we head back to Europe feeling justifiably proud of how far we’ve come in such a short space of time, albeit we are very aware that the challenge kicks up a notch from here," he said.

"Our two drivers have done a very commendable job to cope with everything that we’ve thrown at them with the minimum of preparation and the team have worked so hard to get us back to a very strong operational level.

"The three week break from racing gives us the chance to reflect and evaluate all the data we’ve been able to gather, then come back stronger still for Barcelona."
