Haas, the new American F1 team for 2016, has reportedly acquired Marussia's factory in Banbury, UK. Although the cars will be designed and manufactured at a bespoke facility alongside the Stewart-Haas Nascar team in North Carolina, owner Gene Haas has also been looking for a separate UK base for his F1 outfit.

"I guess it might be a possibility to take a look at the Marussia HQ," he told F1 business journalist Christian Sylt in the Guardian last week.

Racecar Engineering is now reporting that Haas has indeed acquired the Marussia facility, having also declared his interest in bidding for some of the ailing backmarker's assets.

The report added: "It is thought that Haas has also acquired the data and designs for the 2015 Marussia."

  • Items on Gene Haas' "to do" lists seldom wait long for check marks. This is a good result for both Haas and Marussia (also for skilled automotive workmen in the surrounding areas), and I hope that it parlays into a long and successful contribution to F1.
