Manor Racing, the backmarker squad that put an American back in Formula One for the first time in years, is officially done. The team withdrew its entry from F1 after a new owner could not be found, Racer confirmed Wednesday. The company that runs the team’s operations shut down earlier this year.

Well, gotta give them credit for trying. When the other two 2010 new teams failed after at least two seasons, Manor held on, first as Marussia then as Manor, for 6 whole seasons. Heck, they even managed to score points but still in the back of the pack. Last season, they were looking to break into the top 10 in team points until Sauber finally got on the points board at Brazil.

RIP Manor F1 team.
