It#8217;s the only place to watch every race live in 2017

Manor Grand Prix Racing Limited, which holds the rights for the team#8217;s participation in F1, will continue to trade, the person added.

Efforts will continue to find a buyer to enable Manor to compete in the 2017 F1 world championship, but ongoing discussions with a number of prospective investors have so far failed to result in a deal.

The prospect of another financial collapse in F1 comes as Liberty Media prepares to complete a takeover deal for the sport, with executives floating the idea of a spending cap to be introduced in the coming years.

Manor finished in 11th and last place in the 2016 Constructors#8217; Championship, meaning it missed out on millions of pounds in prize money.
