Since joining the Formula 1 grid in 2010, the team latterly known as Manor has had three names and scored three points.
It would be easy to reach the conclusion that F1 is no worse off without Manor, the last of the trio of new-in-2010 teams to fall. The 2017 grid will be filled by 20 cars from 10 teams, all of which are better prospects than Manor to challenge regularly in the midfield.
Over seven seasons its car was always slower than the established teams. There was plenty of driver instability in the later years - Luiz Razia failing to come through with the money at the start of 2013, Roberto Merhi and Alexander Rossi seat-sharing in '15, and Rio Haryanto being dropped halfway though '16.
