Manor has reinvented itself in 2016 after a season in which he had participated in the championship at the last minute and with the single-seater 2014 conveniently modified to comply with the regulations.
The change of name, not of structure, has joined the clear step forward from having the Mercedes engine and a car designed exclusively for the present season. All this has resulted in a breakthrough dramatic performance, even to get a point in the Grand Prix of Austria, competing in addition to without complex against Renault and Sauber.
