Some old acquaintances are interested in Alexander Rossi again.
Manor Racing announces that its Californian test driver Alexander Rossi is being promoted to the race seat, making him the first American to compete in F1 since Scott Speed left in 2007.
The latest word from the racing press has it that a pair of American investors are close to buying a Formula One team, thought to be Manor, to join Haas as a new team on the grid next season.
The struggling Manor Marussia F1 team came all the way to the Australian Grand Prix, but didn't make it out onto the track even once all weekend. And now Bernie Ecclestone says they'll have to pay for shipping both ways.
Struggling but defiant, the Manor Marussia F1 team has announced its drivers for the opening rounds of the 2015 Formula One World Championship, with Roberto Merhi joining Will Stevens on the grid. The team's new backer, Justin King, is also putting his son, Jordan, in the test-driver seat.
Manor Marussia F1 declares it is "making huge strides" toward being on the grid at the Australian Grand Prix in just over two weeks' time. It's got a lot of agreements on paper that are hopeful, but there are a lot of questions - and an FIA crash test - to be dealt with.
The team formerly known as Marussia may not be down for the count just yet, as it emerges from bankruptcy and works to get its 2015 chassis ready for a mid-season debut under Ferrari power.
