Gutted. More here, and it does not sound good:-

Missing out on 10th place seems to have been a major factor.

being cynical (or could be optimistic depending on your point of view), but has the administration process (organizing and consolidating debt and/or renegotiating terms of that debt) become part of the normal process for selling an F1 team?

rather is this just a first step in order to make the team/company more desirable for a new buyer?

i feel like we have seen this pattern play out a few times in recent years.

Normal UK Company Law really Chilli but there are those on here more qualified to explain!

I wonder about those who were left with large debts last time round, may say "here we are again" ( could set that to music!!!)

well they do seem to have their 'dance moves' down so its only fitting that they have music for it to.

This is depressing, if predictable. They've had a really good season. I hope that they make it but doubt that they will.

Will the grid numbers already minimal, losing the underdog Manor would be a great blow. Two less chances for drivers hoping to stay/enter F1. Bernie once again doing diddly squat about it.

Didn't BE say last time around that his preference was for 3 car teams rather than back of the grid outfits?

Sounds like Bernie, the problem is when you have a dominant car. Bernie would rather have the ones who pay him, than the back of the grid strugglers who do things there way against the odds

tbh the fact that Totto Wolf pulled the plug out from Manor (with Ocon at Force India and Wehrlein at Sauber with Ferrari Engine) was a very bad sign already ... it is not finished yet for Manor but feeling sorry for all the peoples employed there

Can we save this post to remind him when Manor doesn't show up to Australia that he's boycotting?
