Marussia auctioneer shows photos of 2015 car

The Marussia F1 Team has fallen after desperately trying to claw their way back to the Formula One grid. Their fall was preceeded by the tragedy in Japan where their star driver Jules Bianchi almost lost his life and still remains unconscious in a French hospital, two months later.

The fall of Marussia

They ran only one one car in the Russian Grand Prix that followed in Sochi, retiring from the race in the early going. The team did not appear at the United States Grand Prix and was cast into administration. Hope rose that they would return when a provisional entry list for 2015 had them on it, but carrying the name of 'Manor F1 Team.'

Less than 48 hours later, negotiations with potential investors had failed and Marussia ceased trading, making over 200 employees redundant. However, the crumbling organization fought to rise from the shattered remains of their race team once more, making a brazen attempt to run the season finale in Abu Dhabi. Some equipment and even crew members made it to the circuit, but the cars never did.

What's for sale

Now, the skeleton of what was once Marussia is to be auctioned off on the 16th and 17th of December. The sale will include race cars (no engines), a complete test lab and machine shop, corporate offices, a fleet of trailers, a large quantity of spare parts including race day replacement parts/tools and high tech server equipment.

Among all the interesting items up for sale, one is of great interest ... The concept body of what appears to be Marussia's 2015 Formula One car. CA Global Partners is the company in charge of the auction, with more details HERE.

The delay that quashed Aston Martin’s last F1 venture

Aston Martin’s only previous foray into Formula 1 in the late 1950s was a short-lived and unsuccessful affair. But it could have been so different, says Nigel Roebuck.

Verstappen exclusive: Why lack of titles won't hurt Red Bull's ace

Max Verstappen’s star quality in Formula 1 is clear. Now equipped with a Red Bull car that is, right now, the world title favourite and the experience to support his talent, could 2021 be the Dutchman’s year to topple the dominant force of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes?

When a journeyman driver's F1 career lasted just 800m

Nikita Mazepin’s Formula 1 debut at the Bahrain Grand Prix lasted mere corners before he wiped himself out in a shunt, but his financial backing affords him a full season. Back in 1993 though, Marco Apicella was an F1 driver for just 800m before a first corner fracas ended his career. Here’s the story of his very short time at motorsport’s pinnacle.

Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton took victory at the Bahrain Grand Prix despite, for a change, not having the quickest car. But any hopes of developing its W12 to surpass Red Bull's RB16B in terms of outright speed could not have come at a worse time.
