Manor deadline extended by another week
Better news is now emerging from Banbury, the UK headquarters of the embattled F1 backmarker Manor.
It was believed the team's doors could close within a week, but reports now suggest administrators FRP have found a way to pay staff until the end of January.
"It means it has a week more than expected to find a buyer before having to consider whether to lay off staff," a BBC media report said.
FRP Advisory did not comment.
But a separate report by the Reuters news agency said talks with "interested parties" are already underway.
