Details of the auction of the Marussia F1 team’s assets have been posted online by the company behind it, CA Global Partners.
The relatively short lead time to the December 16-17th event, which is by order of the administrators, effectively means that any chance of saving the team as a going concern is gone, unless things happen very quickly. In past year the likes of Simtek, Prost and Arrows all came to a similar end.
All the team’s equipment is up for grabs, including the 2014 chassis – but without of course the power units and ancillaries, which are owned by Ferrari. Also in the sale is the model of the 2015 car.
It remains to be seen whether talks are still ongoing to save the team. Nine days ago CEO Graeme Lowdon told this writer: “There are various scenarios for the team, but to race it is very important to have a car ready for 2015, and that is what potential investors are interested in. They are interested in ensuring that work on the 2015 programme can be resumed quickly. Don’t count us out yet.”
