2015 Formula One entry list announced

Lewis Hamilton has elected to stick with his ‘44’ race number for 2015 rather than use the ‘1’ traditionally worn by the title holder’s car. Sebastian Vettel meanwhile will revert to ‘5’ next season.

The 2015 Formula One World Championship entry list, which has been published by the FIA, also shows that eleven teams are currently due to compete. However, the chances of them all actually participating are very slim indeed.

In particular Manor F1 - which competed as Marussia in 2014 - is unlikely to appear on the grid. After all, many of its assets were recently auctioned to help pay off creditors. The prospects for Caterham F1 seem brighter though, with administrators remaining hopeful that a buyer will be found soon.
