Haryanto: If you see me at Hockenheim then I will finish the season
Manor’s Rio Haryanto’s future in Formula 1 will be decided during the eek between the Hungaruan Grand Prix and the German Grand Prix.
The Indonesian driver’s future on the F1 grid hinges on his management team securing funding for the second half of the season as his funding only covered the first half of the year.
Asked by reporters if Hungary would be his last grand prix, Haryanto said, “We will see. Obviously if you see me at Hockenheim then I think that would secure the whole season.”
Despite the uncertainty Haryanto is adamant that his on track performance is not affected, “I have been able to focus a lot on the track so it was no problem at all.
“I think I’m much more relaxed now. It’s good to be back here in Hungary at this track that I’m very familiar with. I’ve been here many times, I think this is my sixth time.”
“Obviously I’ve been racing in GP3 and GP2. With Formula One it’s good to be back here as I’ve got a lot of experience,” added Haryanto.
