Manor fires up Ferrari engine at Sepang



By the sound of it, Manor appears on course to hit the track this weekend for the first time in 2015.

The former Marussia team tried the patience of the FIA and Bernie Ecclestone in Australia, when it stayed silent in the pits all weekend.

Reportedly, amid suspicions the team is simply turning up at the early races to qualify for its millions in 2014 prize-money, Manor has been warned that more silence will not be tolerated.

So on a hot Thursday evening at Sepang, the news came: “Sweet, sweet music from our garage and our Ferrari powertrain, as we complete our planned fire-up,” Manor announced on Twitter.

Earlier, team boss John Booth told the press he is “100 per cent” certain Manor will get out on track this weekend.

Spanish driver Roberto Merhi said: “I know how much work has gone into getting us fully operational again and it will be great for everyone to finally see wheels turning.” (GMM)
