The Manor F1 Team received a major boost on Friday when Formula One’s governing body the FIA confirmed that they will give the outfit leeway when it comes to the official Formula One entry list for the 2015 season.
The team are current in talks with the FIA over their entry for 2015 having already filed their fee to race in Formula One this season. The team have assured the FIA that they can have an interim 2015 specification car ready for the early part of the season and possibly the opening race of the season in Australia.
It is more likely however that the team will get the car ready for the Bahrain Grand Prix which takes place on April 19, this is also the deadline for team to racing as it would mean that they will receive money from the commercial rights holder.
The team are working closely with the FIA to ensure that they have the financial means and technical infrastructure to compete in Formula One for years to come.
The Manor F1 Team announced plans to come out of administration next Thursday 19th February the day the first Barcelona winter test gets underway at the Circuit de Catalunya.
