In total, Marussia collapsed with debts in excess of £60m with over 200 staff at the Banbury-based team being made redundant following their demise in November.
Over trade 200 creditors are listed on the documents, ranging from the £16.6m of debt to Ferrari down to the £2.23 still owed to Snap on Tools.
