Manor may not make the grid for 2017, for financial reasons.

Sad news. BBC link for those who don't want to use SKY.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/38530855

Also, Silverstone considering pulling out of hosting the British GP after the 2019 race because of 'crippling costs'. Apparently in 2015, the race weekend made a loss of £2 million.

Re: 2017 Formula 1 Season Thread

An F1 team going under? Completely rare occurrence. Something needs to change though. On the less sympathetic side of things. Why are people continuously allowed to enter the sport with back marker teams that evidently can't cover the cost of being such a team. I get that they've got a vision and it'll happen in the future but they clearly underestimate the true cost vs waiting for that.

Re: 2017 Formula 1 Season Thread

Back when there were two "minnows", you could judge them against each other, in a race of their own like the days of the Turbo vs. non-Turbo cars.

Is there a future for any team that isn't*sponsor named?

What I find ludicrous about this is that track has to PAY the organiser, in any other sport or music concert, the organiser has to HIRE the venue.

If every circuit told F1 to basically do one, let's see them hold a championship with nowhere to race.

Has Bernie finally left the building?
