Manor Plans To Return by Bahrain
« on: February 19, 2015, 08:29:30 PM »
  • Publish
  • The former Marussia teams plans to return to the grid by Bahrain. A statement from administrators FRP Advisory said, “The joint administrators confirm the requisite approval by the company's creditors on 19 February 2015 to a company voluntary arrangement, which allows for control of the company to be passed back to the directors and the company to exit from administration.

    “The financial restructuring creates a platform for the company to continue with its plans to participate once again within Formula One.”

    I hope they make it. They're a scrappy little team that punches above its weight.

  • Doesn't they give you a hint of the spirit that once Mirardi used to be in the paddock. I think that is the thing that kept going for this team, they never give up, may be scrappy, may unorthodox, and at times very comical, but they just never stop the push, and that is what I like about them the most.

  • I am really glad to hear Manor have been given the green flag to do the preparations necessary to reach the grid. I hear a crash test for a 2015-valid car has already been booked (but not what the date was).

  • It looks like they may have an engine deal with Ferrari:

  • Fantastic! This team is really starting to remind me of two of my favorite teams: Minardi & Super Agruri.   :yahoo:

  • On the grid with Will Stevens. He impressed me a lot in Abu Dhabi and I'm pleased someone is in a position to give Will a proper chance.

  • It looks like they're getting help from high places. Not just Ferrari, but also McLaren & even the FIA:

  • It does seem that some in Formula 1 have finally woken up to the fact that they actually need a minimum of 20 cars to ward off the prospect of three car teams and even greater expense.  It has all come rather late in the day, but at least some support is finally being offered.

  • Why not have 2 one car teams?Bring back the true privateers

    Has there been any team that recently itemized their operating budget?  Is building a second car a huge cost? 

    I would think that the r&d of the car itself, plus shipping costs and the cost of mechanics, engineers and crew both at 'home base' and race weekends take up most of the budget. 

    And surely a sponsor wants twice as much exposure for their $$$.

    However, I've said elsewhere that F1 should allow 1/2/3 car teams to create opportunities for teams to grow into the sport without being tossed in the deep end.
