Graeme Lowdon (Sporting Director) and John Booth (Team Principal) are set to leave the Manor-Marussia Formula One team at the end of the current season less than a year after saving the team from financial disaster. With the increased costs that came with the new power units which were introduced for the 2014 season, Manor, then Marussia, joined the former Caterham team with serious financial issues which almost ran the team into the ground. However, the efforts of Lowdon especially helped saved the team after their former owner Andre Cheglakov withdrew from the project towards the end of the 2014 season, by helping to secure a deal with OVO Energy founder Stephen Fitzpatrick which saw Manor take to the 2015 at the very last minute. But, since then the relationship between Fitzpatrick, and Lowdon & Booth has allegedly soured with the Fitzpatrick apparently keeping the pair out of the loop in regards to how the team is being run and out of the decision making processes. Should Booth and Lowdon leave the team, the current word of the grapevine is that the pair will switch to the World Endurance Championship, although there is no word on which category they would be involved in. Meanwhile, a move away from Formula One and Manor would in turn would bring to an end John Booth's 25 year association with the team after he founded the team back in 1990. Do you think Lowdon and Booth's exit could harm Manor's 2016 prospects? Or is this the right move for a team looking towards the midfield? Let us know below!
