Lotus in doubt on the new 2015 entry list

2014. December 25. 20:12

The FIA has released an updated entry list for the 2015 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, though it remains largely unchanged from the original document.

The main susprises are that both Caterham and Manor - which ran the Marussia team until entered administration - remain on the list, despite both having folded last month.

Whilst Caterham potentially has a chance of lining up on the grid if a buyer can be found, Manor has sold the majority of its assets during an auction last week.

Therefore it seems rather unlikely the latter will be on the finalised list, as such, both remain 'subject to confirmation'.

Meanwhile a third team is listed under the same status. Lotus, which is known to be under financial strain with mounting debts, has gone from confirmed to 'subject to confirmation'.

The updated list also confirms that Lewis Hamilton will continue to use the #44 as his race number, despite earning the right to use #1, as Sebastian Vettel did in 2014. The German will now use #5.
