After being hastily cobbled back together from the ruins of Marussia just weeks before the start of the season, the squad has quietly gone about the process of rebuilding. In Canada the team announced a new sponsor, the budget accommodation finder AirBnB. There were other new stickers on the car too, a clear sign that business was finally returning to normal for the tiny back of the grid team. That sponsorship news followed on from John Booth's announcement that the team had secured the signature of former Renault and Mercedes man Bob Bell. Bell has been employed to run his eye over the team and help it formulate a plan to secure the its future. Presumably that means structuring the engineering side of the team to maximise its potential, which is where Bell's expertise lies. It's a similar role to that which Pat Symonds had with Marussia in the past, and one Bell has done at Mercedes under the gaze of Ross Brawn. It didn't stop there though, Manor also announcing it had signed former Toro Rosso chief designer Luca Furbatto to lead its design team, and Gianluca Pisanello, formerly of Caterham and Toyota, as its chief engineer. The signings strengthen the management team at Manor but, more importantly, signals a serious intent from the team and its new owner Stephen Fitzpatrick. As the season begins its European leg the team is demonstrating the early season promise that as the year wore on its focus would move on from survival to moving the team for ward once again. 15 GPWEEK.com // 15 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: F1 >>> news building momentum
