Staff working for the Caterham F1 Team arrived for work at the outfits Leafield factory this morning to find that the facility has been locked by administrator Finbarr O'Connell from Smith and Williamson.
Mr O'Connell has confirmed that until the current situation with 1MRT is resolved staff at the team will remain locked out of the premises.
The news comes as a major blow to the team preparations for next weekend's United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
