cds_uk should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
What now for Manor?

Interested to see what you guys think will happen with the team, they made good progress this year didn't they, comfortably caught up with the pack and scored their point with pace rather than everyone else dropping out around them. They have got some very good guys in place on the management side, Ryan, Tombazis, Fry etc, but i think a huge amount depends on the drivers for next year, the Wehrlein, Ocon dream ticket level of ability is unlikely to happen again is it. Also the sale or investment in the team is looming, hopefully it won't totally derail the whole thing as it would be a shame to lose them.

it was a good season but they have not the best budget. Now it looks like the Gelael family will buy Manor, but that's just a short-time solution.

Same for Sauber I think.

I agree, it was good to see them mixing with the others rather than being in their own race

i don't know how much money they spent this season but the guys continue to do a great job on a relatively small percentage of what the big guys spend. hopefully they've been able to spend a decent amount of design time on next years car and keep up with that before and during the sale process.

Does it guarantee Mr Harayanto a seat?

I don't know.

Certainly 2017 will be a big test.

If they can hold station (or even improve) it would be a very good sign, but I would say history would suggest they will drop back a bit again (arguably fold during the season).

The machine is a brutal thing.

At 69? No chance. To get a Manor on the podium inside five years would be a miracle. What's in it for Ron?

Ricardo Gelael won't pay for Rio Haryanto. Ricardo will pay for Sean. But no matter what the new season brings, we’ll always have a race in Paul Ricard coming. Bisou bisou!

The chances of that are minuscule at best.

A recalcitrant Honda powerplant in 2017 might make it more plausible than you think...

The article reads like a journalists musings, rather than anything with real substance. However stranger things have happened.

I think we need more sources before we speculate if this is going to happen
