The future of the F1 teams we currently know as Marussia and Caterham are bleak, as we know. However the official entry list for the 2015 Formula 1 season shows a pathway does exist for them to carry on, but not as we know them.
Entered on the 2015 list are Manor Grand Prix Racing (née Marussia) and 1Malaysia Racing Team (née Caterham). While both teams are still looking to secure their financial futures their appearance on the official entry list should make things more appealing for prospective buyers.
Meanwhile, Caterham’s immediate future has improved with the team’s administrator saying he expects they will be competing in Abu Dhabi.
“I think I’ve got enough confidence now to say I’d be very surprised if we were not racing in Abu Dhabi,” said Finbarr O’Connell, from administrators Smith & Williamson. “I’m now really hopeful for the future of the team.”
