Manor passes test
Manor’s new Formula 1 car has passed its final crash test at the first attempt. The Banbury-based team is now ready to test its first new car since 2014, after racing a modified year-old car last season. The 2016 car features a current-spec Mercedes engine and the team has been aided by a technical partnership with Williams. The team has also hired ex-ferrari designer Nikolas Tombazis as its chief aerodynamicist.
