Abu Dhabi Don’t

According to Daniel Johnson of The Telegraph, the Marussia F1 team has ceased trading and staff are being made redundant. He reports that the team will not make it to the final race in Abu Dhabi.

This then appears to constitute the liquidation of the team, making it hard for any buyer to do much more than restart from scratch.

Alternatively, it is possible (though less likely) that an incoming buyer does not wish to inherit the existing team’s payroll, and is waiting until liquidation before jumping in to buy the entry and IP, before re-hiring staff.

Given that the current crop of F1 team owners aren’t exactly building a reputation for integrity, this wouldn’t be a complete supprise.

Time will tell…
