Sad news for Manor #F1 racing fans at http://www.LiveF1chat.com/fan/Manor today.
Manor Formula 1 team rescue hopes end as 2017 FIA entry withdrawn - Autosport has learned that Manor's chief Stephen Fitzpatrick has written to the FIA to notify it officially that his team was withdrawing from the F1 championship.
There's a great article here in Motorsport on why #F1 needs the smaller teams - https://motorsport.clickon.co/2017/02/07/formula-1-will-miss-manor-racing/
Its especially hard on younger drivers like Jordan King "For everybody in my position as a young driver, it becomes a lot harder when the grid shrinks."
There are some discussions about Chinese backers coming in......so of course there is still a chance they'll be back in 2018.....unfortunately #F1 has always been a rich mans sport and that's unlikely to change anytime soon :(
