The team went into administration earlier this month with hopes of securing funds. The team did manage funds, however, it was used to pay salaries to the Manor Racing Team staff.

The administrators ceased trading Just Racing Services, Manor's parent company. This ultimately forced Manor to shut down. An emotional team managed to share an image of what the 2017 F1 car would look like.
