Manor Marussia have announced three key appointments to their team.

The team are slowly rebuilding after the financial crisis saw the collapse of the original Marussia F1 team.

Manor Marussia have seen the team return from the brink of being dissolved to returning to the Formula One paddock and the grid.

So far the team have raced using an adapted 2014 Formula One car, but intend to introduce a newly designed 2015 car later this year.

As part of this process former Toro Rosso chief designer Luca Furbatto has joined Manor Marussia as head of design and former Caterham team engineer Gianluca Pisanello becomes chief engineer.

Former Mercedes technical director Bob Bell has also joined Manor Marussia as a consultant.

The 57-year-old left Mercedes in November and brings a huge amount of experience to the team.
