Team History

A tricky start to the year sees both D’Ambrosio and Glock struggle for pace in the MVR-02. D’Ambrosio’s 14th place in Australia is the team’s best result from the opening three flyaway rounds.
After some success in lower formulae, Manor Motorsport join F1 as Virgin, with a digitally designed car. Early pace and reliability are poor, plus chassis overhaull needed  after it is embarrasingly realised the fuel tank is too small to complete some races. Performance improves, allowing team to close on Lotus as best newcomers, but still finish last.
