Marussia drivers Timo Glock and Charles Pic have said that the lack of KERS on their MR01 cars this weekend could hinder their progress.

The Buddh International Circuit possesses one of the longest straights of the season.

"India, in my opinion, is a fantastic track. There are so many special sections to the track, especially Turn 3, which is a very extreme corner. You have to completely turn into the steering wheel, followed by a very long straight", says Glock.

"I’m excited to see what we will achieve there this year there, however with the long straight the KERS factor will again play an important role. Of course, we will try to get the best out of our package and achieve a two-car finish."

Pic adds that his first visit to India could be limited due to a lack of KERS but is taking the positives from the previous event in Korea.

" I think the long straight will be a challenge for us because we don’t have KERS, but we did a good job of achieving a good balance across the whole lap in Korea, so we will see how well the package works for us this weekend", he said.
