The British government did not support Marussia’s F1 revival.
Now reborn as Manor Marussia, the outfit is touching down in Melbourne this week having emerged from administration thanks to support from creditors including McLaren and Ferrari.
But another creditor, according to the Telegraph newspaper, is the UK tax collector HM Revenue and Customs.
The newspaper article’s co-author Christian Sylt told us Marussia owes $1.5m in taxes, with HM Revenue and Customs having “voted against the team exiting administration and racing this year”. (GMM)
