Maurizio Arrivabene says Ferrari is happy to assist Manor in its efforts to get back on the F1 grid, but says it should adhere to its new agreement or face losing its engine supply.

In its former Marussia guise, Manor slipped into administration towards the end of the 2014 season, with engine supplier Ferrari being named as its biggest creditor. At the time, it was noted that the team owed upwards of $16 million to Ferrari out of a total $60 million.

Despite this, Ferrari has reached an agreement with the newly revived Manor F1 set-up to, for the time being, supply it with 2014-specification engines. Indeed, though debts are still to be paid, Arrivabene says he is happy to be dealing with a 'new company', but says it will simply stop supplying if payments aren't maintained.
