Manor has hit back at reports the team is once again in danger of collapse. Reports have suggested that with Sauber passing the team for tenth in the all-important constructors' championship, missing out on the $15 million could mean Manor may collapse.

Team boss Dave Ryan, however, congratulated Sauber for Felipe Nasr's ninth in Brazil. "Compliments to Sauber," he told Auto Motor und Sport. "They used the opportunity 100 per cent."

At the same time, Ryan said there is one last chance for Manor to hit back in Abu Dhabi next weekend, even though a rain-affected result is unlikely. But "There's still one more race so another chance," he insisted. "In this sport, anything is possible and the race is only over at the chequered flag. So even though it hardly rains there, we still have hope."

And Ryan denied that the $15 million income loss will spell the end for Manor. "We'd rather have the money than not," he said, "but not having it does not mean the end. It will not kill us." (GMM)
