The pupils of the Mercedes Pascal Wehrlein and Esteban Windows admitted that saddened by the fact that the Manor ceased to exist, after spending seven seasons in Formula 1.
Wehrlein and Windows finished the last season as part of the British team and the Germans and even managed to score one point in the race in Austria.
Nevertheless, Brazil’s Felipe Nasr of Sauber was able to break into the points zone, displacing the Manor on 11-th line in the Cup of designers.
“I still maintain relationships with many staff Manor – admitted Wehrlein in an interview GPUpdate.net. – Too bad we’ll never find them in the paddock. Last year we coped with the task, considering our options… we even scored one point.
We often surpasses the capabilities of our car in terms of pace and position. Sorry guys not allowed to show their potential this season”.
Windows agreed with his ex-partner: “Yeah, that’s extremely sad. In the last race I was giving 200 percent, tried to catch up with Nasr, but couldn’t. I was very upset after hearing the bad news, because this team deserved to be on the grid this year. Considering our budget, we did a great job.
In the last race we showed good pace finishing in 13th place. The team is constantly progressing, so this news is particularly upsetting.
Manor gave me the chance to be in Formula 1, so I am eternally grateful.”
In the upcoming season, Wehrlein will continue to play in the composition Sauber, while Esteban Windows – in the Force India.
