Haryanto secures first full-time drive since F1 exit

Rio Haryanto has landed a full-time racing seat for the first time since he exited Formula 1 midway through the 2016 season. The Indonesian will compete in the Blancpain GT World Challenge Asia, driving a Ferrari 488 GT3.

Haryanto made his F1 debut at the start of the 2016 F1 season with Manor, partnering fellow rookie Pascal Wehrlein. However, prior to the Belgian Grand Prix, Haryanto lost his seat to Mercedes junior Esteban Ocon.

The GP3 and GP2 race winner recorded a best result of 15th at the Monaco Grand Prix, in a year that would turn out to be Manor's final campaign in F1 after failing to find an investor at the end of the season.

Haryanto is set to compete in all six rounds of the 2019 championship, which contains current F1 tracks Suzuka and Shanghai, as well as former venues Sepang and Yeongam.

  • That's what happens to a bona fide pay driver who loses sponsorship. He had to re build his reputation. Good for him for finding a drive. Even if it is a 3rd rate category. It's actually kinda sad. He did win properly some races in GP2 and GP3. Now he's racing in a mediocre category
