After scoring a used 2.0l Mercedes Benz diesel out of a salvage W123 for the 2016 season, Manor-Marussia F1 has been adopted by Williams-Martini Racing.

“We are proud to announce the adoption of Manor-Marussia,” Williams-Martini Racing said. “This poor little bugger of a team was left to die last year and after watching them play with an old Ferrari GP2 car this year we saw something in them that just melted our hearts.” Williams will be giving them food, shelter, suspension systems, and an old top loader that they found lying around out behind the shed. “We look forward to seeing what they can do next year with our help. If nothing else, they’re still in better shape than McLaren, Red Bull, or Team Lettuce.”
