That's what i thought as well.
Education is that which allows a nation free, independent, reputable life, and function as a high society; or it condemns it to captivity and poverty.

As they have no car, no staff, no equipment & no factory, '2015 participation unlikely' is the understatement of the century.

yes lol !

Unless Ferrari makes a move of some sort. One could argue that it might be beneficial to Ferrari not to lose a team that uses its engine (ok ok PU...). I tend to think so, but certainly I am in no position to know whether the benefits would outweigh the costs.

Obviously, but they're still on the 2015 FIA entry list, so i felt like i couldn't keep them out off the 2015 team topics. Also as some form of respect for the team.

The 2014 position (9th) is incorrect. Their 2014 position was DSQ - they failed to participate in the necessary events to be classified.

I dont understand administration laws but right now is this possible..........

Manor has an entry and potential $50 for showing up next year

Marrusia has been liquidated and over $40 million written off

Caterham has about $25 million in debt

Caterham looking for a buyer

In case the administrators of Caterham merge with Manor along with one of the potential buyers

And Caterham debts are paid off is the new entity have protection from the old Marrusia creditors?

Relating to FIA they are classified as 9th with 2 points.
They were allowed to miss the last races in 2014.

“Marussia have announced their intention to come out of administration by a company voluntary arrangement. I have been in touch with their administrators and one of them - James Rossiter – has released this statement:

‘It is envisaged that, prior to the commencement of the first race of the 2015 season, investment into the business will be made upon the Company exiting from administration via a Company Voluntary Arrangement (“CVA”), which is planned for 19 February 2015. A CVA is a restructuring process agreed with the Company’s creditors which allows for a turnaround of the business and the creation of a longer term viable solution for the team.’

“My understanding have followed these negotiations is that one of the key factors is that Marussia will get their prize money from the 2014 season – somewhere in excess of £30m. Now that that is firmly in place they are a much more attractive proposition for a buyer.

“My understanding is that John Booth and Graeme Lowdon will be running the team and they do plan to take part in the first race.”

So as posted at the testing thread, maybe McLaren Honda are behind Manor's comeback
