    It seems very sad , indeed , when one considers all the talk of F1 morphing into a friendlier place for teams and promoters alike , that Manor has fallen from the grid .
    The former owner wanting to keep some equity must have had something to do with what he saw as the future for the series .
    That fact , apparently , was what scuttled the attempts to save the team , according to Saward .

    I guess you can't blame the guy , if he had been convinced he could actually have made a few bucks as an owner , and arrived only to find a big pit into which he could throw his money .
    And , then , to have the series sold , with coming promise of possible financial relief , and be forced to sign it all away at a hard loss ?

    I can imagine his mindset , wanting to keep a piece .

    Hopefully , losing them will inspire the new lease holders to fix this .
    Something must be wrong when the loss of one point can kill a team .
    It should scare the crap out of everyone .
    I hope it does .

    Sad to see them go. Sad that F1 is almost impossible for smaller teams to enter

    MEP's have voted for an enquiry into F1 due to how the funds are unfairly distributed between the teams.

    What does this actually mean? Can they enforce a change?
