Manor Enter Administration

Formula One Manor Racing Philip Boeckman

With preparation for the 2017 Formula One entering its final stages, Manor Racing have declared that they are facing administration.

The much loved minnow outfit of F1 is facing a fight to make the first race of the season in Australia in late March, having been unable to find an investor. The team made great strides last year, impressing from the back of the grid with some strong performances from rookies Pascal Werhlein and Esteban Ocon. With the pair having both moved on for the 2017 (or in Wehrlein's case, very likely to move on), Manor have yet to announce their driving pairing for this upcoming season.

Manor are also well-renowned for their strong and interactive social media presence, with their fortnightly posters promoting each Grand Prix a particular highlight for Formula One fans.
