    Default F1 - Trouble in paradise - key staff leave Manor

    "Manor team principal John Booth and sporting director Graeme Lowdon have tendered their resignations from the Formula 1 squad"

    "Technical chief Bob Bell has followed John Booth and Graeme Lowdon in tendering his resignation from the Manor Formula 1 team."

    Looks like they dont see eye to eye with the new owner

    At least they have secured Mercedes engines for 2016 after having run last years specced Ferrari engines his year under a dispensation.

    I think Bell will go back to Renault F1 (if they take over Lotus) , probably as team principal.

    Bell's role was always a temporary one iirc, but the fact that all 3 have departed at the same time would indicate 'something' serious has occurred.

    My understanding is that the there was a difference of opinion in the direction which should be taken between the owner and the staff
