It’s unlikely Manor will make it to the grid in Australia after the administrator has failed to find a buyer. The team could still be rescued if a buyer is found for the remnants of the team. It’s been over 20 days since Just Racing Services, which operates Manor, went into administration and, after a number of last ditch attempts to save the company and the team, Just Racing has ceased trading. Staff will be paid their January salaries, but will be made redundant by the close of business on Tuesday (January 31st). Manor the last of three teams that joined Formula One back in 2010. What was then Virgin Racing was attracted, like the other two teams, by the promise of a budget cap that was supposed to be introduced. The £40 million cap never came into place, causing budget problems for all three teams. The team has already been saved from death once, when it went into administration in October 2014. It was saved at last minute, but no rescue has been found this time around. There is still hope. The 2015 buyer was found on the eve of the 2015 season and, though it is unlikely, there’s still time for a buyer to keep the team alive for the 2017 season.
