The Manor F1 Team have been dealt a major blow ahead of this weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix after the Telegraph reports that their Sporting Director Graeme Lowdon and Team Principal John Booth have resigned from the outfit
The paper reports that Booth 60, who founded the Manor team in 1990 before bringing them into F1 in 2010 with the help of Richard Branson’s Virgin Group naming the team Virgin Racing and Greame Lowdon 50, have in recent weeks become increasingly estranged from team owner Stephen Fitzpatrick.
The paper also claims that both Lowdon and Booth could enter the World Endurance Championship leaving Formula One behind. It is believed that although the pair have informed Fitzpatrick of their resignations they will not come into affect until the end of the year.
The Manor F1 Team, Lowdon and Booth have so far refused to comment on the story.
