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.
Ever since the bankrupt Caterham F1 Team launched its crowd-funding campaign to get back on the grid, everyone's been wondering which drivers it would be bringing to Abu Dhabi – especially since one of its usual drivers jumped the sinking ship for Sauber. But now they need wonder no more as the team has announced it's giving Marcus Ericsson's seat to newcomer Will Stevens.
