The team of the Manor at the end of 2015 brought a profit of 51 million euros. As the Executive Director of the Manor Vincent Casey, the moment saved the team from collapse and gave the opportunity to pay all the bills. It is clear that an important, if not the main role, played ninth place teams at the end of the 2014 season, which earned the stable victim Jules Bianchi.In addition, the report command of your financial situation shows that a huge investment in March last year, was made by the businessman from the UK, Steve Fitzpatrick. Bringing in a team of almost 42 million euros, he became its owner. Now, the code team started to generate income, the Fitzpatrick leads the talk about the sale of Manor. Now the most real candidates for this role are Indonesian group of investors and Ron Dennis, removed from the leadership at McLaren at the end of 2016.
The fast-food chain KFC, more precisely, its Indonesian unit Jangonya can buy the team Manor.As reported by Nextgen-Auto, negotiating the sale of the team has gone far enough. Indonesian KFC is no stranger to motorsports.

Over the last couple of weeks several teams have announced the signing or renewal of contracts for the season 2017. In the end, on the eve of the final stage in Abu Dhabi there are only three jobs.Sauber of the pilots of the Swiss team will be Marcus Ericsson, and it is still unknown who will be his partner. Sauber, where there are some problems with finances, traditionally rely on intermediate pilots with good sponsorship. Under these settings work Felipe Nasr and Esteban Gutierrez. About the talks with Sauber said Pascal Wehrlein, but the company Mercedes, which supports his career, willing to spend no more than 3-4 million Euro.Napoletana team where free both of the cockpit. The probability that the place in Manor will keep Pascal Wehrlein - in this case a small team to get a discount on Mercedes engines. The second place could take Justin king, the son of one of the owners of the Manor. Perhaps the return of Rio Haryanto - if the Indonesian will be able to collect the necessary 10-15 million euros.Other candidates for a place in a Manor not seen.

Now you need to pay about 7.5 million euros.Indus Innovati, the mother of the pilot "We are doing everything possible, as quickly as possible to find sponsors. We need to pay 7.5 million euros to Rio was able to speak in the second half of the season.

I am familiar with Barcelona on "you", so expect only positive from the race result."On account Haryanto four races in Formula 1, and while the best result is a 17th place in Bahrain.

Five mobile operators of Indonesia has launched a program of assistance to the first Indonesian pilot of the Formula 1. Anyone can send a message to a specific number, thereby donating 5000 rupees about 0,3 euros.To collect the necessary amount, enough 12 million SMS. Given that the population of 257 million people, it's a real idea.

Having considered the incident, the stewards of the Australian Grand Prix punished pilot's Manor.Haryanto will lose at the start of the three positions. In addition, Indonesian received two penalty points.
Rio Haryanto is obviously not the most talented and not the most promising of all the debutantes of the season-2016. But the richest - his contribution to the budget of the Manor is estimated at 15 million.Traditionally Haryanto career began with karting. At the age of 15 Indonesian debut in the formulas behind the wheel of a car series, Formula Asia 2.0. In 2009 he won the local championship Formula BMW Pacific, after which he moved to Europe.In 2010-2011, Rio competed in GP3 in the composition of Manor Racing and won three races.

Now I'm in Formula 1 and it is perfect. My army of fans is only growing. I am grateful to them all for this support, I have a great relationship with them and there is nothing more beautiful than to know that you are supported".
Three months before the start of the new season there are still vacancies only in the team Manor. At these places claimed by four pilots, two of whom already have experience of performances in Formula 1.Will Stevensin the 2015 season won 21 seats in Formula 1, the Briton made his debut in Formula 1 at the final Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi season-2014 in the composition of Caterham. This year he acted in the Manor and finished in 15 out of 17 races in which he participated. Despite the fact that his best result last season - 13th place, will says that is more likely to remain on the Manor.Alexander Rossiin the season-2015 has ranked 20th in Formula 1 and 2nd place in GP2At the beginning of the year, the American almost moved to IndyCar. At the last moment he signed a contract with the GP2 team, where he won three races and became the Vice-champion, second only to the incredible Stoffel Vandorn. At the end of the year Rossi had the opportunity to spend five races in the composition of the Manor and finished 12th in his home Grand Prix in Austin. In recent times, Alexander often says that the talks with the leadership of the Manor are very good, and in the near future worth waiting for positive results.Rio Haryantoin the 2015 season took 4th place in GP2Indonesian pilot had stayed in GP2. Last season was the fourth in the series, but the most successful Haryanto Campos won three races and for the year ranked fourth. Rio participated in tire tests at the end of the year in Abu Dhabi, in the composition of the Manor. Support for the pilot has Indonesian oil company Pertamina. In addition, the Indonesian government is discussing the possibility of allocating an additional 10 million. If this happens, Haryanto will be the main contender for the place in Manor.Pascal Wehrleinin the 2015 season became the champion of the DTMthis year, the German became the champion of the DTM series. In parallel Wehrlein took part in Formula 1 testing, as part of a Mercedes and driving partner team Force India. Pascal claimed a place in the Indian team, but in the end there chose to retain Sergio Perez. Last chance - to take place at the Manor, where the next season will use motors Mercedes. However, there are a good sum for the place, and the management of the German company is ready to allocate not more than four million dollars. On the background of the sponsorship budget Haryanto this amount is very modest. The Wehrlein evaluates his chances as "50/50".Next season will be Manor to use a more competitive power plant of Mercedes, and the sample may 2015. The management team expects to regularly fight for points, and in this respect Manor is a lure for many pilots. However, the decisive role in the selection of pilots will not play experience, and the availability of sponsorship money.
SMP Racing's Sergey Sirotkin finished the season racing series GP2 in the third line of the final table. The Russian pilot was named the best newcomer of the season, earned the award for "Breakthrough of the year" and also has to its credit a record of a route in this Silverstone series.By the beginning of the final phase, which ended last weekend in the UAE, on account of Sergei was only 7 points more than his nearest rival, racer from Indonesia Rio Haryanto. This advantage has virtually disappeared after Saturday's race, when the Indonesian finished seventh and earned six points, and Sergei finished fixing allegations. Sunday's race became the decider.On Sunday, right at the start, just a big "blockage", which was eliminated from the race immediately eight cars, one of which was that Sirotkin and machine. At this point everyone thought that the third stage of the championship "floated" from Sergey. But intervened His Majesty the Case. The resulting collision damaged the safety barriers at the track. Their recovery took so much time that it was decided not to restart the race in time to prepare the track for the upcoming races, "Formula 1".Thus, Sergey Sirotkin by a margin of one point managed to retain the third final stage in the prestigious youth Series GP2."A lot of nevezenie was in this season, - said Sergey Sirotkin. But, as they say, all's well that ends well. Three of the best - that's what we aimed for and this is a worthy reward for all our team. I want to thank everyone who helped and supported me throughout this difficult season".
Alain Prost, four-time world champion, newly arrived in Russia, as an Ambassador of the brand Renault to take part in the Moscow international motor show. In an exclusive interview nonf1.ru the famous French rider spoke about the work of the engine of Renault Sport, commented on the incident in Spa between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, and said that the fate of the Grand Prix of France does not care.
Question what are the specifics of your mission at the Moscow motor show this year
Alain Prost Every time I'm out somewhere, there's some special reason, for example, together with Renault I am often in countries where the automobile market is actively developing was in Indonesia, in Beijing, in South America. Of course, you understand that the Russian market is very important for the company, and today we unveiled the new Renault Sandero, but I'm more involved in another new project is a Renault RS 01.
On the one hand, the creation of a racing machine of this type is a demonstration of technological capabilities Renault, on the other hand we show a new approach to design. The impression that RS 01 like all means, Laurens van den Acker, chief designer of Renault, found the right style solutions. Renault creates a new story, and Motorsport is an important part of it. RS 01 is designed for new monocube, which is included in the World series by Renault and claims to be the best championship of this kind.
Question All Renault Sport rejoice in the success of Daniel Riccardo, who won in Spa is a stunning victory, beating rivals from Mercedes. Does this mean that the French, the mechanics have made progress over the summer break
Alain Prost some progress is always there, albeit small, so that the work is ongoing. But in Formula 1 this means little, because all progress. It is necessary to achieve higher rates of modernization than rivals, and we need to realistically assess the situation behind Mercedes is still great, and in a normal situation this year to overcome difficult.
But to the Spa, together with Riccardo, with team Red Bull Racing, Renault mechanics used a special machine settings, and it worked out perfect. And we've seen this year that every time when Mercedes made mistakes, Riccardo always been able to take advantage of it. Chances to beat them in the League - minimum, however, to predict what can happen unexpected, impossible. Moreover, ahead of racing on tracks, on which Red Bull and Renault more likely to succeed. But, as I said, you have to be careful in forecasting, because Mercedes is still a major advantage.
Question In Spa we saw that Daniel was really fast, and Sebastian Vettel, which has the same number of titles, how many of you have complained about the lack of speed. How would you explain the difference in results companions at Red Bull Racing
Alain Prost let's Start with the fact that Daniel copes with the task. It seems that one of the riders doing everything right, but the second things don't work. I mean that Sebastian was faced with many challenges, and Riccardo difficulties almost was not. And it's impossible to explain. But, for example, last year Mark Webber was obviously more of a problem than Vettel, and everyone said that the whole team works only on Sebastian. Sometimes these things happen, and to find an explanation for this is very difficult. It's just bad luck.
On the other hand, this year Vettel can't fly the machine in the same manner to which he was accustomed in previous years. Of course, this is due to the new technical regulations. At the time, commenting on the race on TV or watching the Grand Prix of the boxes Red Bull Racing, I saw that the team has set up his machine in a special way - talk about cartography of the engine, and the driver peered with the exhaust system, and so on. All this gave him an advantage.
You can say that now former advantage has turned to his additional challenges. However, actually, the difference in speed between them is small, but worth it during the race to prevent a small mistake, and it directly affects your self-confidence, and maybe even and tires on your car degrades faster - all of these things, taken together, result in the difference.
I don't think anyone doubts the talent of Sebastian. The only thing is that his companion was in a more favorable situation, when he encountered some problems. But before the end of the season Vettel must find the key to their solution. I think he is capable.
Question do you think that is not too strict new regulations do not allow a full-scale revision of the power plant
Alain Prost When I talked with people from Renault Sport, they said that everything will be fine, and they have the ability to make changes to the propulsion unit. Of course, restrictions should not be too strict, because otherwise the one who from the very beginning everything was done correctly, will win forever. This is not what we need. It seems that the possibilities for improvement of engines is wide enough, but let's see how the situation would develop. And I agree, if they were not provided, would be just the trouble.
Question the Main theme of the week is the incident between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton in Spa. You know best what causes intense rivalry between teammates, who are fighting for the title. How would you comment on the situation in the Mercedes, and what should you do/
Alain Prost Until recently, the team did everything right, except for certain moments. But in Hungary they worked not quite correct, although once it is recognized. However, what happened in Spa, this is a classic example of what I always say.
In my opinion, it was a racing incident, you know After all, no one even remembers that from the cockpit of the machine do not see anything, and in front of her huge wing, and every weekend we see two or three incidents, when broken front wings.
And here's what happened Rosberg tried to stay on the outer path, and Lewis didn't want to leave him more space, which is quite understandable. Niko didn't want to leave on the curb, and possibly made a small mistake in the assessment of the situation. But he couldn't do it intentionally, because when you do these things intentionally, the probability that your machine will be damaged, much higher. You can stay without the front wing, get a puncture, and so on. This is my opinion.
Of course, the consequences of this incident was very serious race Lewis was spoiled, he was very unlucky, but still it was a racing incident. However, even the Mercedes team, not to mention the press and the fans reacted to the incident too painful. In such situations scandal always inflate the people who surround you. In the case of me and Ayrton hay problem was this everyone who was there, even friends and our families only all aggravated.
So I think that after the incident in Spa all have gone too far. Its consequences are really serious, I agree, but the reason is not that significant.
Question the Geography of the championship continues to grow with the great success of the Grand Prix of Austria, returned to the calendar, this year will be the first Grand Prix of Russia in the next season, the race will again be held in Mexico, and in turn Azerbaijan. But on the return of the Grand Prix of France in the last time nothing heard.
Alain Prost I don't know whether a continuation of this history. Now a single project is not even on paper. No one discusses, therefore, to return to the subject only in vain to waste time. To me she is not interesting. The opportunity to return to the Grand Prix of France was, but the politicians decided not to do it. We are not able to deal with them. Such things need to either do well, or just for them not to take.
Without state support, this project is not implemented, because everyone knows how great the risk of losing money. This should stand the decision at the state level. Therefore, we first have to decide policy. But, in my opinion, now the wrong moment.
