Will Stevens says he is hoping to kick start his season at this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix after a disrupted start to his 2015 campaign.

Manor Marussia did not run in Australia and the Briton was unable to participate in either qualifying or the race in Malaysia due to a fuel pressure problem.

"There were some positive signs at Sepang with the running I was able to achieve, so I’m looking forward to building on that here in China," said Stevens.

"It’s been good to have the data from Roberto [Merhi] for the team to work with and I’m hoping that we can start to get into a good rhythm from this weekend.

"It’s always good to tackle a circuit I’ve never raced at before and this one has some nice challenges for both car and driver, so it will be good to experience those and to start getting to grips with the car a little more."

Team principal John Booth is confident that the squad has made progress.

"Thanks to our first full race distance at Sepang, we’ve been able to use the data gathered there to get our 2015 development programme underway and we’re looking forward to applying what we have learned from that in the field this weekend," he said.
