With Monday's news that the Marussia Grand Prix team had entered administration, it has been revealed that two British businessmen Baljinder Sohi and Sonny Kaushal are very interested in purchasing the team for roughly £50,000,000.
After a nightmare few days for the team which has been forced to miss the upcoming American and Brazilian Grand Prix's after entering administration, on top of their emotional distress surrounding the grave injuries suffered by lead driver Jules Bianchi at the recent Japanese Grand Prix also.
The Daily Telegraph has reported that Marussia Chief Executive Andy Webb approached Sohi and Kaushal to invest in the team. It now appears the two are close to agreeing a deal, with the only sticking point being an apparent £10 million difference in valuations of the team. Sohi was quoted by the Daily Telegraph " We are very close to a deal, But it has to be the right price. We have put in a serious offer and we will see what happens."
From here it seems the Marussia team has reason to be hopeful with potential new owners, although it's clear the deal isn't quite done yet as they both struggle over the valuation, which of course includes taking on the team's debts of around £30 million pounds also. I sincerely hope we can see both Marussia and Caterham at the season ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, although both have a way to go yet to make the grid in November.
