Manor wary of Haas threat in 2016

1 Mins read

The Manor F1 Team are wary of the threat posed by the arrival of the Haas F1 Team when the American outfit make their Formula 1 debut in 2016.

Haas’ arrival pushes the field to 22 cars, and adds pressure to Manor to perform and retain its top-ten placing in the constructor’s championship, with Manor Sporting Director Graeme Lowdon insisting it was the team’s intention to make progress and become a more competitive outfit.

“From what I can see the team coming in next year has gone about making a Formula 1 car in a very different way to everybody else,” revealed Lowdon to Autosport.

“When they do fall under the rules at some stage it will be interesting to see how all that progression goes. But we have to focus on what we can do within the rules, and try and be as competitive as we can for next year.

“We are developing the next car. What I am happy about is the progress on it does look really good, so that gives everybody energy to push forward.”
