Haryanto could lose his F1 seat at Manor after Hungarian GP

Rio Haryanto’s run in formula one could now be coming to an end.

While there have been mixed reports over whether the Indonesian rookie will stay at Manor all season, the 23-year-old is in fact only signed up for the first 11 races of 2016.

That would take him onto to the chequered flag in Hungary next weekend.

“We don’t know what will happen for the rest of the year, our initial agreement with Manor was for 11 races,” Haryanto’s manager Piers Hunnisett admitted to the Jakarta Globe this week.

“We are still working hard to find solutions to finance Rio with potential sponsors but nothing is confirmed yet,” he added.

The newspaper said Haryanto needs to raise EUR 7 million in order to keep his seat until the season finale in November.

“The team are very happy with Rio’s performance and we all hope Rio can make Indonesia proud and stay in F1 and for 2017,” Hunnisett added.
