At the crisis-ridden Formula-1-Rennstall Manor-Marussia there are three races before the season ends. The backbencher team seems to be losing almost its entire leadership. p>
Team leader John Booth and Sports Director Graeme Lowdon have filed their resignation at the end of the season due to differences with race stadium owner Stephen Fitzpatrick. And technical advisor Bob Bell also stops at Manor-Marussia. p>
Mercedes Motorsport Manager Toto Wolff is affected. From a personal point of view, and also as a racer, I have to say that these exits are a heavy blow,”said Wolff, who delivers engines to Manor-Marussia from 2016:”We have made a deal with Manor and now, as a spectator, we are curious about further developments.”
Manor had almost gone bankrupt last year. Booth and Lowdon had kept the financially underprivileged racing stable alive during the winter. This season the team is still without a WM point.
